I was surprised, honored, and slightly confused to have recently received the Zombie Chicken award from the delightfully opinionated children’s literature blog Underage Reading. Why confused? I don’t usually comment on zombies or chickens in these page (unless it’s in reference to myself (being a chicken, not a zombie)). I was therefore glad to see that the award creators provided some additional information:

The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken – excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their words.

I’m flattered. Thanks to Elizabeth and Emily at Underage Reading.
