More-igami earns Ridgway Honor Award

I’m deeply grateful to announce that I’ve been selected to receive a Marion Vannett Ridgway Honor Award for More-igami.

The Ridgway Award is given annually “in recognition of an outstanding debut in the world of children’s picture books.” Established in 1993, the award is named for an artist’s representative who took a special interest in new authors and illustrators just breaking into the publishing business.

Winners are selected by a group of published authors and illustrators.
