The Princess and the Pig US award nominations

Book award nominations keep on coming from both sides of the Atlantic at the moment.

The Princess and the Pig, illustrated by Poly Bernatene, was shortlisted for the Fiction Picture Book category of the  CYBILS Children's and Young Adult Bloggers' Literary Award a couple of months ago.  The winners are selected by a panel of US book-bloggers and the category was eventually won by Me … Jane by Patrick McDonnell last month.

And I'm delighted to announce that The Princess and the Pig has also been shortlisted for the Picture Book category of the Maryland Black-Eyed Susan Book Award 2012-2013, which is voted for by more than 60,000 school children in the US state.  I have to confess that I didn't know what a "Black-Eyed Susan" was, but a quick google revealed that it is the perennial daisy that is the state flower of Maryland.  The winner of the award will be announced in May 2013.
