Hi Everyone,

The official announcement was made in Nov 2019;  however, due to my overseas travel and holiday busy-ness, I forgot to mention here. I'm thrilled to share that my picture book HONU AND MOA was awarded a 2019 Aesop Accolade by the American Folklore Society!
Congrats to the Aesop Prize winners and my fellow Aesop Accolades winners.

The complete list and official AFS announcement:

Here's a screenshot from my publisher's IG...


Cheers,
Edna

Congratulations!

For Valentine's I am getting each of my kids a book that reminds me of them and I will be getting this for my daughter who loves turtles. We go to Hawaii every year and she has named several of her turtles Honu so she will love this!
