on my desk monday

A table full of flowers! Congratulation bouquets from all over! Knopf (my picturebook publisher), Listening Library (publisher of the Where the Mountain Meets the Moon audio book), Little Brown (publisher of Where the Mountain Meets the Moon) and The Foundation of Children's Books all sent me flowers for my Newbery Honor nab (see the silver sticker?)! Squatchie added the monkey.

Thanks all!!

Flowers are fitting. A Newberry couldn't have happened to a sweeter person or a more talented writer.

You are an inspiration. Congrats!!!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! We have the book--with your lovely autograph--and can't wait to read it! I got your newsletter--and then, a second copy from my mother-in-law. We are all so happy for you and proud of you!!! --Anne Fernald (married to Marilyn Morgan's son)

Congratulations! I am thrilled that you won the Newbery Honor Award for "Where the Mountain Meets the Moon." I am the publisher at PicPocket Books (picture books for the iPhone and iPod touch) and I adore your illustrations in "Round Is A Mooncake," our latest release (in partnership with Chronicle Books).
I wish you much continued success with your writing and illustration.

Thanks, Everyone! I really appreciate it!

Anne--say hello to Mrs. Morgan for me. I hope she thinks this makes being the teacher adviser for the 7th grade Writing Club more worthwhile!

Lynette, thanks for letting me know about the "round is a mooncake" iPhone version. It's exciting to see the book in the new technology!
