Only a few days out now: the American-English translation of HET HONDJE DAT NINO NIET HAD, the picture book that Anton Van Hertbruggen and me made. THE DOG THAT NINO DIDN'T HAVE is the title, Laura Watkinson translated it, and Eerdmans published it. The book got some nice reviews, like the ones in Publisher's Weekly and Kirkus Reviews.

But now there is an award! The Society of Illustrators once a year grants Golden and Silver Awards for 'the best books' and Anton gets one of the two Silver Medals! (The golden one is for Ji Hyeon Lee.) This is the list of previous winners.

In October, November and December the work of the winners is shown in the Society's museum in New York. More about that, and about the award is to be read here. Anton: Congrats!
