Elee and the Shining Star has won a 2018 Tillywig award for Best Family Fun. The Best Family Fun award is given to top-notch products that encourage family time or are well-suited to interactive play. From their review, "young readers readily identify with the angst of separation from family, the joy and comfort of acquiring new friends, and the confidence and competence that comes with achieving greater independence. The story is endearingly and expressively told using language perfectly suited to the targeted age group and artwork that charmingly conveys the baby animals' personalities and emotions." Congrats Elee!
