JULY 9, 2013
Isol, winner of this year's Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award for children's books for 2013.
In March 2013, the Swedish government sponsored award committee announced its decision to give this year's Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award to Isol, a children's book illustrator and author from Argentina. The other night, she accepted the award (sometimes referred to as "Europe's Caldecott").
Her acceptance speech is charming and inspiring like her books; she even sang a portion of it. She's got a fabulous voice! Congratulations to Isol!
