Why Dogs Beg

Want to know why dogs beg? Mine does and no wonder. There are always tasty bits under my daughter's chair. But I digress. I do ... and the answer is in the grand prize winning entry in the March issue of Children's Writer authored by none other than my dear friend Bish, who's been regaling us with stories from the Virgin Islands on her blog. Boy, that's a long sentence. I can breathe now.

I've had the pleasure of reading her collection of Anansi stories, which my kids loved too, and I hope that one day it will be a book. Don't believe me? Jane Yolen said so, too.

Congratulations, Bish!

YAY BISH!! I am so happy for you, lady! THIS IS FANTASTIC NEWS! (see, I can't stop using the exclamation points!!!) :)

I am looking forward to seeing your stories in print, Bish. Many, many congrats!

Oh Vijaya! Thank you for your kind and awesome words! I'm still kind of in a daze about this win. Pinch me... no don't I think I like floating.

I just read the news on Bish's blog, which is so rich with culture! I'm so happy for her!

Vijaya said...

That Bish is full of stories and surprises. Good ones, too.

Wow. I JUST opened my ICL lesson package and have the Children's Writer issue in my hot little hand!

Vijaya said...

I love CW, Marcia. I've had a continuous subscription for years and I love that it comes with my lesson packet. Bish hasn't yet rec'd hers, but it's on the way, I'm sure.

And for those of you who are wondering about CW ... it's the best newsletter out there for children's writers. And, no, ICL doesn't pay me to say this.
