Yes! We went to Whitby and I was allowed to come into the arena for the celebrations. (Usually dogs are not allowed, so now I know for sure that I am special.) Here are some pictures of what I saw. The kids were all so excited, they were screaming. Loud music was playing. And there was food.
Then the winning books were announced. And guess what-- BRAVE DEEDS won at Whitby! Yahoo, Ann was so excited. She got a bag with goodies and I got a little bag with biscuits. I hope I get to eat them soon because I was on the table looking pretty and behaving myself for two and a half hours. And that's a long time to be good.
Here are some pictures of Ann's book flying off the book table. There was a huge stack to begin with. Lots of kids bought them
and got autographs.
And a wonderful drawing of BRAVE DEEDS by one of the students.
