I'm SO happy!! "No!" won the Read it Again! The children's picture book award! Such an special award, because children are the ones who voted for it!! :_) the presentation ceremony was lovely! It was GREAT meeting so talented illustrators like Zehra Hicks, Sam Usher, Chris Judge and Judi Abbot! it was a shame that Nadia Shireen, Alex Latimer and Kali Stileman couldn't come, but they sent a little text that was read in the ceremony, that let us know a little bit more about them, and how they created their books. Also lovely Chris Haughton (2011 winner for "A bit Lost"), was there to present the ceremony!! What a fantastic day!! Thank you so much!!

Peonza!

Juan Peón lo tenía claro: un paso adelante, nunca atrás. Y a matar. O a morir. Era lo previsto. Lo habría sido de no ser por aquel movimiento inesperado el día en que le tocaba andar en diagonal. ¡Y que viva el Rey… o la Reina! Pero el paso cruzado le salió redondo, y Juan Peón se vio, sin saber cómo, girando sobre sí en el tablero bicolor de la vida. La vuelta fue perfecta, tanto que todavía sigue ahí, en su juego sin reyes ni reinas. Sin jaques ni enroques. Los demás le miran en la distancia. Ya no blancos o negros: amarillos. “¡Será peonza…!”, escupen para dentro.  Xosé A. Neira Cruz
 
Ilustración para el 25 aniversario / 100 números de la revista Peonza :) Forma parte de una serie de azucarillos que se presentaron el día 30 de Marzo en la Biblioteca Central de Cantabria. Resultado de la colaboración de 15 escritores con 15 ilustradores. Esperopoder colgar alguna foto pronto!

Espinacs :)

Estic contentíssima! Dijous passat em van donar els llibres del Vaixell de Vapor que he il.lustrat! El llibre es diu "Espinacs" i és una història escrita per la Teresa Blanch i l'Anna Gasol, per a nens i nenes a partir de 5 anys.

"Un vespre, l'Arnau troba un gosset abandonat. L'amaga al garatge i decideix dir-li Espinacs. Però, a l'hora de sopar, tota la família sent sorolls estranys al garatge, i organitzen una expedició per fer fora l'animalot que s'hi hagi amagat. Quina sorpresa tindran quan sàpiguen què passa realment. I quina sorpresa tindrà l'Arnau!"

I feel super happy! Last Thursday I recieved the first chapter book I've illustrated! The book is called "Spinach", and it has been written by Teresa Blanch and Anna Gasol. It is meant to be for children from 5 years old (first readers) :)
