105 Ways to Give a Book

Kaiju Haiku Winner!

My daughter won Adam Rex’s Kaiju Haiku contest!!! She doesn’t know yet, being at school, but she’s going to be thrilled! She loves his books, as I mentioned, and who doesn’t love winning stuff?

With the variety of entries, two grand prizes were awarded in a younger and older age category. You’ll see the other winner and illustration, plus the runners-up over at today’s post.

(Congratulations, my angel!)

Ha ha! What exciting news! (Okay, so you called me on the phone to let me know, but I still feel like I should react here as if I'm hearing it for the first time.)

So she has an original play performed, she writes short videos for school, and now she has original poetry illustrated? What's next, the Great American Novel?

And since I suspect she'll be reading this, I'll go ahead and say -- for the record -- congratulations, sweetheart! I'm so proud of you!

I'm catching up on all the back posts in my blog reader, and I just wanted to say congrats to your daughter! I love her Haiku! How exciting for her. My son is a big fan of Smekday also.
