Hey hey… the Louisville Courier-Journal just named Sidney & Norman one of the best children's books of the year!  That's pretty cool, eh?  I'm not sure how many other newspapers publish this sort of list, but we'll have to keep our eyes open.  Let me know if you spot our pigs on any lists in your neck of the woods.

And by the way, it makes a great Christmas present!  If you're looking for gift ideas, our friends in Louisville are here to tell you you'll be hard-pressed to find a better children's book!  (At least this year, anyway.)  Pick up a copy or two from your local Christian bookstore, Amazon or Christianbook.com.  While your at it, you can preorder a copy of my book for grown-ups, Me, Myself & Bob, which already got a nice review in Publisher's Weekly.  That book doesn't come out until January 9th, just in time for that post-Christmas "I need a new book" rush, but it never hurts to reserve your copy early to avoid that whole Wii/PS3 fiasco.  Fist fights, shootings, it could get ugly in front of your favorite Christian bookstore around midnight January 8th.  Order now to avoid an ugly incident!

I'm finished being self-promotional now.
