Awards for Works

Rebel! 1993 single work picture book children's 'The General marches across Burma's dusty plain with tanks, guns, and soldiers. He reaches the school and raises his baton; his tanks flatten the slides, swings, and monkey bars. "You are my people now," he tells the villagers. "I will make the laws." They are too frightened to resist, and how can unarmed farmers and children fight against an army? Then, somewhere inside the school, a rebel responds....In this story, the courageous action of a young rebel—and its impact in a culture that values "saving face"—results in a village's defeat of tyranny. The author based this story on an incident that happened in Rangoon.' (Source: Phoenix Education website)
