It seems that "My Name is Not Isabella" has been named as a semifinalist in the Moonbeam Children's book awards for 2009 in the picture book ages 4-8 category. See entry number 9. I understand there were over 100 entrants into this category. Also, some of the other books are published by publishing houses such as Carolrhoda, a division of Lerner, Warner Press Kids, Sylvan Dell Publishing amd Raven Tree Press. These are experienced publishing businesses. I am floored. And happy. Stay tuned for final results.
