Also, while About a Farm did not win, here is the review from the judge for the Writer's Digest 21st Annual Self-Published Book Awards:
"The story is well written, withan easy-to-read, conversational flow...The characters are well drawn and seemreal (not too nice but suitably argumentative when needed; wonderfully caringabout each other), and the stories have nice, subtle lessons, as well as subtlehumor. They never talk down to thereader but let him/her get the messages/humor on their own. That each story isso short is helpful, especially to today's kid readers who have shorter attentionspans. The sad story at the end nicely balances things out, and adds tothe lessons learned...A delightful, enjoyable book."
