IMG 2972

Extra-special shiny in the mailbox today! From the letter enclosed in the Junior Library Guild package:

Congratulations! In keeping with our goal of providing extraordinary reading experiences for children and young adults, ¡Esquivel! Un artista del sonido de la era especial (Esquivel!: Space-Age Sound Artist) has been awarded the designation “A Junior Library Guild Selection”…. The Junior Library Guild Selection designation is unique in that it is typically awarded so early—often in advance of publication. With its distinction as one of the first awards given, it is often viewed as a bellwether of future success. 

I’m humbled, honored, and excited to share this award with Esquivel!’s amazing illustrator, Duncan Tonatiuh, and publisher, Charlesbridge

Muchas gracias, JLG!
