Thank you, Jon Scieszka!

Jon Scieszka, author of The Time Warp Trio series, the Trucktown series, The Stinky Cheese Man and The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs and Math Curse! and more, founder of Guys Read and, from what I can gather, all-round good guy, has spent the past two years as the first-ever National Ambassador for Young People's Literature, a post appointed by the Library of Congress. And boy, did he take the role seriously - from wearing a sash when the situation called for it to making huge numbers of public appearances to forming new initiatives to spread an interest in and love for reading, Jon Scieszka showed what a reading ambassadorship ought to look like: active, fun and always interesting, just like reading.

Thank you, Jon, for your tireless work to engage young readers!
