I am trying desperately to finish the Halloweensie judging!
SUCH a challenge! You all did an unbelievable job and having to cut anyone from the list is practically impossible. Vast quantities of chocolate are required for this Herculean task!
I mean seriously! There were 244 fantastic entries and somehow the other judges and I have to cull them down to a dozen…preferably without doing each other bodily injury! 🙂 I can assure you there is a great deal of hair-tearing, tooth-gnashing, and rending of garments going on around here!
So I’m not posting a Perfect Picture Book today because I’m buried under Halloweensie stories.
But I will put the link list here for those of you who want to Perfect Picture Book Party 🙂
For the complete list of books with resources, please visit Perfect Picture Books.
PPBF folks, please add your titles and post-specific links (and any other info you feel like filling out 🙂 ) to the form below so we can all come see what fabulous picture books you’ve chosen to share this week!
I’m hopinghopinghoping to have the finalist list up by later today… or tomorrow… 🙂 Wish us luck!!!
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!!! 🙂

Hope you find some chocolate edges to these busy days, sweet Susanna! 🙂
Such a successful Halloween contest! Judging must be very challenging. Read many great entries.
The entries were fantastic, you certainly have your work cut out for you. Thanks for all you do!
No worries Susanna! Patience is a must in this business and waiting is good practice for us. You all rock for the energy and time you put into judging. ❤
So many wonderful entries, I hope the chocolate is getting you through them. Thank you for the wonderful contest!
I know I only got to read about half of them, Susanna…and they were amazing!!!! Sending positive energy to you!!!! It was a super fun contest and I loved participating!
A chocolate IV might be in order. 🙂 Thanks for all your hard work. I hope you have a great weekend.
Good luck! I haven’t had a chance to read the entries, but I know narrowing them down is not going to be easy. Sounds like you had a record turn out this year!
Susanna, WOW 244! What a great turn out. I do not envy you that job. Everyone did such a great job – it was fun to read them and see how diverse and creative a community we have. Wishing you tons more chocolate.
Thanks Susanna, it was a lot of fun
Good luck with the judging😊
I’m surprised that you and yours have any hair left! I know that I enjoyed reading the entries. Good luck with the judging! And I wish you much chocolate as a reward for making it through the process. Cheers!
You make us all better writers. Sorry, not sorry? 😂
So many great entries. I don’t know how you and your team will do it but…armed with chocolate…you will succeed! Good luck!! 🙂
Goodness that’s a heap load of entries, good luck in selecting the finalists. 🙂
Every year you have the Halloweensie contest. Every year I am amazed and in awe at the talent on display when visiting the various entries. Every year, I truly do not know how you cull the entries down to just a few.
I love that you do this. It gives a chance for hobbyists, part-time writers, and lovers of the written word to share their storytelling with the world. Even those who do not make it to the final round are awesome and may catch the eye of someone perusing through the blogosphere.
Thank you for doing this, Susanna 🙂
