Betsy Bird posted her list of her favorite children's books of 2011. She's got a really nice list of 100 books, which includes terrific work by the likes of Lane Smith, Jon Klassen, Kevin Henkes, Patrick McDonell, Chris Rylander, and Shel Silverstein. Imagine my surprise when I clicked the link to the page and saw my book staring back at me. I'm pleased. Pleased I say.
