Winner's Circle Saturday: Fall 2011 Winner

alligatorThe Lucky Clover Picture Book Contest is announcing the winner for the FALL 2011 contest. Thank you to everyone who entered. It was a lot of fun. You can now enter the WINTER 2012 contest (click above for details). The deadline is March 31, 2012.

Congratulations to...

Catherine Johnson!

Her early picture book manuscript, Big Al, is cute, funny, and clever and comes in at under 150 words (a feat I don't think I could ever accomplish). Big Al is an alligator living in the Everglades, but he's having trouble catching some lunch. Until he comes across an unlikely food source for an alligator. Hilarious! Hope to see this on bookstore shelves one day. And if this one becomes your debut book, I hope you'll interview with me for my monthly HIGH FIVE feature. Congratulations!

Hope to see more entries for the WINTER 2012 contest throughout the coming weeks.

Keep on keepin' on...
