Grace!!!!

So well deserved! But I am not surprised. As a young art student at The Rhode Island School of Design you were amazingly creative, so talented,so full of positive energy, and you worked so very hard-- the word quit was never part of your vocabulary.

Congratulations! Such joy!

How perfect! The Year of the Tiger will begin with your wedding, then there will be the Newbery awards ceremony. Good things often comes in threes, so I'm wondering what Good Thing #3 will be? A...puppy?

Yes, this is so well-deserved!!!

How did you know to have the camera ready?

Thrilled for you, Grace. I love getting the honor -- you get to dress up, drink champagne and you don't have to say anything!!!!

Plus, your name is on the same list with E.B.White. I'd say it doesn't get much better than that.
