I was completely surprised to learn Honey Cake had won the Chocolate Lily Award. It's such a quiet, serious little book and not the sort of thing you'd expect to win as a popular choice. The small organization (about 2 people) running this BC kids' choice award really goes all out. I almost feel guilty getting my lovely trophy and certificate for the 40 illustrations I did for this book. But I did go all the way to Copenhagen to research it, so not too guilty. It really is the most aptly named award: the chocolate lily is a plant native to British Columbia.
