Larry Gets Lost in Seattle was nominated for a 2009 Washington Children’s Choice Picture Book Award last year, but I never heard how that worked out. Assuming that they would have told me if I’d won, I began to assume the worst.
On the Washington Library Media Associations website, I discover the bad news. Not only was I in the middle of the pack, but a whopping 30,296 votes separated me from the winner. Look at the commanding lead for Chester! I’ve seen tighter races in North Korea.
As the name implies, the Children’s Choice Picture Book Award is voted on by school children, and, alas, they have spoken. Thanks to all 3144 of my supporters.
