Popping the cork

... the champagne cork, that is.

How to Steal a Dog has been named a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year.

Woohoo!

And.....that's not all.....

....it has also been named an ALA Book Link's Lasting Connections for 2007. (This is Book Link's annual roundup of the year's best books to tie into the curriculum.)

Woohoo again!!!
