Cue the confetti!

Guess what? 50 Poisonous Questions has won the Canadian Science Writers’ Association award for best youth science book of 2011. Wow! Thanks, CSWA — I’m totally blushing!

Since I’ve already fully freaked myself out by going to a school seismic meeting this week, I may as well go all out and learn the science. Congratulations, Jerry Thompson — can’t wait to read your book!
