I got some incredible news this morning.

I got a call from the Canada Council for the Arts to inform me that I'm one of five finalists for the Governor General's Literary Award for Children's Book Illustration! I'm ecstatic. I never would have dreamed of such an honour.

  1. Wow. Oh my god, Melinda, congratulations! You should be so proud.

  2. Thank you so much Anthony and Yukiko! xo
