"Inside a Snail's Shell"

Sometimes things in life get SO exciting that you almost need bricks on your head to stop you from jumping up and down! The child's book I illustrated 'Inside a Snail's Shell' maybe didn't win child's book of the year 2003 in the EPPIE awards (one of only 5 finalists) ... BUT a hard copy arrived this week in my 'snail' :) mail - it was just SO fabulous to see it in print!
What's more, now it has just been released, there is already one buyer (NO!!!! ... NOT me!!! :) ) - and they want a SIGNED copy - as they consider this book good enough to win the 'Caldicott'!!!
Is it JUST me? Or do others get such great things happening to them?
