Tender Morsels is a Printz Honor Book

Yes, it's true. I...don't quite believe it—what do you do when your dreams come true? Oh, of course, champagne. What was I thinking.

Just as huge news, 'our' Melina Marchetta WON the Printz, for Jellicoe Road, so it will be a big Aussie party there in Chicago come June, when the awards are presented.

It's so exciting. I'm so relieved and pleased.

UPDATE: It's even more official.

Oh, congratulations! That's wonderful news. I started reading Tender Morsels immediately after your reading on Sunday and am well into it, enjoying it immensely and delighted that it relates to one of my favourite fairytales (I was doing an illustration for it just last week :)

Congratulations, Margo!

I finished the book a few weeks ago, and it's corny to say, but I haven't felt the same since. I wished I could crawl into the pages and live in the world you created for awhile. Thanks for writing it.
