Newbery award winner and New York Times bestselling author

Today my whole day was brightened by finding out that Tía Isa Wants a Car won a spot on the 2012 Amelia Bloomer Prize list.  This is a list of best feminist books — which I am so thrilled to say includes picture books for our youngest readers.

Thank you to the committee for such an honor. Of all the happy things that have come my way as a result of this book, this is one that I am so proud of.

Mil gracias, chicas…
