Good News Party!!

Who can't use lots of Good News!! We've got many talented and amazing SCBWI Western Washington members! It's a Good News party!!!

Congratulations to Lois V. Harris! Cowboys & Indians Magazine reviewed CHARLIE RUSSELL: TALE-TELLING COWBOY ARTIST book in their December issue (Holiday Gift Guide, Kids’ Bookstall). Visit Lois's website to find out more about her books!

A big yahoo for Curtis Manley! He received a Letter of Commendation from SCBWI's Barbara Karlin Grant committee for his picture book manuscript THE CRANE GIRL. The story is a retold version of the Japanese folktale about a crane who takes human form out of love for the person who saved her life. Integral to his retelling are haiku in the voices of each of the characters.

SCBWI's announcement is on their website.
Hip Hip Hooray for Anne Belov! One of her cartoons, The Panda Ranch Experience, appears in Henry Nicholls new book, THE WAY of the PANDA (published by Profile Press in Great britain, publication date September 30, 2010).
And last but not least, here's a big Woo Hoo for Elizabeth Blake! She has an illustration that is being published in the U.S. and at least one other country. The illustration is called "Life is Fragile".
The idea was to make an image to remind families to use child safety seats. It is being used in Washington state as a poster, it is in process of becoming a booklet. It is being used by hospital nurseries and pediatric clinics in Washington, in child safety seat programs in the U.S. and Guam.

You can find out more about Elizabeth's work on her website.
