2019 Cartwheel for Favorite Male Character - Oliver from The Vanderbeekers of 141st Street
"I was just told that I won Favorite Male Character for the Cartwheel Awards, and I think that is really cool. I mean, I live with four sisters, so sometimes being a boy is not easy! I’m glad you recognize that my life can be really challenging sometimes. Is there a prize for being the favorite male character? Like, I was hoping the award came with cookies or something. If you are going to send cookies, let me know and I’ll give you my address. I was so excited about getting this award that I wrote a haiku:
Winning the Cartwheel Makes me want to cartwheel, too! And eat warm cookies!
I’ve got to get back to reading. I’m in the middle of a really good part in my book, and I need to see how the story ends! Thanks again! Happy reading! Oliver Vanderbeeker"
