Hooray, Metal Man has been named one of Bank Street College's 2008 Best Children's Books of the Year!
In addition, a little while ago I wrote that Metal Man was included in the Bookbuilders of Boston Annual New England Book Show. I've received the very handsome catalogue for the show, featuring their selection of the best book design of the past year. I'm proud to be part of it. Congrats also to Susan Sherman, who designed Metal Man.
Also, our book made it into the Librarians' Choices 2008 by the Texas Woman's University, which recommends the best 100 books of 2008. From the review: "[…] Full-spread illustrations in subdued colors and tones mimic the movement of the lively boy and the spark-flying work of the welder. They also provide fine examples of artistic perspective. Together, story and pictures provide powerful encouragement and inspiration for all budding artists."It's so great to know that people enjoyed this book as much as I enjoyed illustrating it.
