My very own Aslan


I'm so pleased and honored that Where the Mountain Meets the Moon was just named the 2010 Mythopoeic Award Winner for Children's Literature!

I was quite surprised but thrilled, especially as this award comes with what is called the "Aslan," which you can see above (image stolen from Jane Yolen's site, a past winner--I know! Great company, right?). I can't wait to actually receive my own Aslan, though I'm not sure where to put him. I kind of wish I had a great wood wardrobe for him guard.

Congratulations! I have to admit, though, I was puzzled that you were excited to receive "my very own Asian." I guess I need my eyes checked!

Congratulations! Very cool.

@yamster: I read it the same way at first too.

Ha ha! A lot of people have been reading it as "Asian" and have been confused.
