It has been a genuine pleasure to watch JosÃ©e Bisaillon’s charming work evolve, and it was a joy to learn that she has received not one, but two fantastic awards in the past week. How nice that the industry thinks she’s as fabulous as we do!
The Great Moon Hoax was recently included in the 2012 edition of Best Children’s Books of the Year by the Children’s Book Committee at the Bankstreet College of Education. The committee looks at over 6000 titles every year and carefully selects the best 600 books based on their literary quality while also considering their emotional impact on children.

Additionally, we have learned that Bookspeak! has been honored at this year’s Bologna Children’s Book Fair with a White Raven Award…this is tremendous! The Bologna Children’s Book Fair is one of the premier events in our industry, and this is truly a tremendous accolade. We couldn’t be more proud.
