Rosie Sprout receives a star from Publishers Weekly!
★ “An accomplished debut….Wortche possesses both a refreshing directness and a willingness to trust her readers… This impressive new author is well served by Barton (Mine!), whose digital classroom sketches convey a tumult of emotion and have just the right amounts of energy and vulnerability.”
Publishers Weekly, October 24, 2011
Thank you, PW!

MINE! was accepted into the Society of Illustrators Original Art Exhibit 2011! Many Thanks to the jury! I’m delighted and honored and… okay, I cried a little bit when I heard the news. :) I traveled to NY with my best friend and fellow illustrator Laura Logan for the opening… just WOW! And bonus! We met and had lunch with all the folks from Random House/Knopf that I have been working with – what a wonderful, fun group!! So many memories to treasure forever!
Karen Henry Clark, author of Sweet Moon Baby has two author events this month. Wish I could go!
