“Celia” included in USBBY-recommended list of “outstanding international literature”


School Library Journal has reported that the United States Board on Books for Young People (USBBY) has released its 2015 Outstanding International Books list. We are very proud to announce that PPP picture book Celia, written by Christelle Vallat and illustrated by Stephanie Augusseau, has been included!

The USBBY says its Outstanding International Books committee "is charged with selecting international books that are deemed most outstanding of those published during the calendar year." Criteria include artistic and literary merit, originality and creativity, books that introduce American readers to outstanding authors and illustrators from other countries, and books that help U.S. children see the world from other points of view.
