I am doing my best to sound modest and all, BUT over 1.2k exhibitors, over 26k visitors, etc etc, and who finds a little mention in the Publishers Weekly wrap-up of this year’s Bologna Children’s Book Fair? Guess, guess! My tiny baby Pickle Yolk Books is right up there, standing strong (4th para from the bottom)! Hugs to one and all for always cheering me on through this madness of mine!
