Steve Light "Have You Seen My Dragon? (Candlewick Press) won first place
Mac Barnett ""Count the Monkeys" (Disney/Hyperion) won honorable mention along with me.

We will be at the National Book Festival in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, September 5 , along with hundreds of other authors from all different genres. See:
