Zachary Z. Packrat and His Amazing Collections was recently nominated for a Grand Canyon Reader Award (2011 nominees will be posted soon at www.grandcanyonreaderaward.org/). Next April, up to 45,000 students across Arizona will vote on their favorite of 10 selected books in several categories, including one for Picture Books.
Zachary is jazzed. He will have the opportunity to meet a lot of young readers in the coming year and he hopes to win their hearts. Because of all the things Zachary collects… friends are most precious!
