The Adventures of Squirky the Alien #4: Who is My Mama? was one of the Second Prize Winners at Samsung KidsTime Authors’ Award 2016!

This came as such a lovely surprise as well, especially since I wasn’t sure the books qualified for this competition since they do not have explicitly Asian settings.

It was especially heartwarming to receive a note from one of the judges, Adeline Foo, who took the time to drop us a line.

“Your heartfelt stories together with the quirkiness of the artistic renditions have really touched the judges’ hearts. And kids’ hearts too, especially those who are looking for answers…”  

I haven’t quite processed this unexpected, if somewhat sudden, show of appreciation for Squirky. But once I do, there’s a big reflection post coming up.
