Cool News: The Last Panther is a Green Earth Honor Book and a Colorado Book Award Finalist

I just got some good news that I wanted to share with you

Update: The Last Panther was just selected as a Green Earth Honor Book and a Colorado Author’s League Book Award Finalist!

Available now (or ask your local bookstore or library to order it)

The Last Panther was also chosen to be a finalist for the 2018 Colorado Book Awards!

The book’s in some fine company, with other amazing books by Newbery Medal winning authors like Avi. Many thanks to the 40 readers and judges who selected this book!

One more bit of good news: Bookbar, an amazing independent bookstore in Denver, just selected The Last Panther for their new Local to Local book donation program. They’re giving over 150 copies of this book to kids at local schools to help encourage summer reading. This is an incredible program. Please show your support to Bookbar by buying some books from them (that’s what book stores love). It’s an amazing community service they’re doing.

Thank you Bookbar!
