Barbed Wire Baseball receives Junior Library Guild Selection

The very first kids book I have illustrated is not yet out in bookstores, but it received a great news that the book was awarded the designation Junior Library Guild Selection for books publishes in spring of 2013.
I had talked about the creative process on my blog. Yes, it was a really tough and long process to illustrate a whole book from cover to cover. So,  receiving a recognition means extra special.  Thank you so very  much.

The book comes out very soon in early April. Pre-order on Amazon today.
