A great way to start the new year:

The Small Adventure of Popeye and Elvis
made the list of finalists for the 2009 Cybils Award in the middle grade fiction category.

Hooray for you and Popeye! I just read it and it's just a perfect combination of naughty and nice, funny and poignant. Oh, I just loved it.

I sat next to you, btw, at the NCTE Children's literature luncheon. I had you sign my copy of Popeye and Elvis to the elementary school, but then I decided I needed my own at the middle school (gr. 5 - 8).

Good luck with the Cybils!

It was a great luncheon and fantastic conference. I also attended the blogging authors panel. The energy there was contagious. It definitely inspired me to blog more and stretch my wings a bit. BTW, here's the link to what I wrote about Popeye.

Brenda, your blog post popped up on my Google Alerts just a minute ago and I was so WOWED! Thank you so very much for your kind words and for spreading the love. I hope our paths cross again.
