Paula's book, 'Choose Your Days', has received high praise and was the 2017 Nebraska Children's Picture Book winner. In addition, 'Choose Your Days' was selected to represent Nebraska at the National Book Festival in September 2018. 'Choose Your Days' was published by Cinco Puntos Press (Texas) and is available online, through bookstores, and in the studio.

'Choose Your Days' is a children's picture book that encourages us all to remember that we hold the key to our days and it will represent Nebraska at the 2018 National Book Festival. The Nebraska Center for the Book picked 'Choose Your Days' as the state's selection for the National Book Festival's 'Discover Great Places through Reading' brochure and map. Each state selects one book about the state, or by an author from the state, that is a good read for children or young adults. The brochure and map was distributed at the September 1 Festival in Washington, DC and will be featured in the 'Great Reads about Great Places' links on the websites of both the national and Nebraska centers for the book. This book, both written and illustrated by Omaha artist Paula Wallace, tells an engaging story of a child learning to live her dreams to the fullest. The bright and whimsical illustrations sweep the reader along through the story and help deliver a powerful message about love and loss. Nebraska'a 'Great Reads about Great Places' book is chosen from the previous year's Nebraska Book Award winners, and this book was awarded the 2017 Nebraska Book Award in the Children's Picture Book category. Entries for the 2018 Nebraska Book awards will be accepted until June 30-see their website for more information.

The National Book Festival will feature presentations by award-winning authors, poets, and illustrators at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. Festival attendees can meet their favorite authors, get books signed, have photos taken with mascots and storybook characters, and participate in a variety of learning activities. States will staff exhibit booths to promote reading, library programs, and literary events.

In more book news--Mr. Reginald and the Bunnies makes its international debut from Pomegranate Communications in September 2018. Friends of the studio have seen the story grow and stretch from the original concept, Damn Rabbits. Spend the day with three rambunctious bunnies as they romp through the quiet life pf their uncle, Mr. Reginald-who likes things just so-- and his perfectly tidy neighbor, Mrs. Paddock. Full of sweet mischief, the youngsters bumble and tumble while the adults mumble and grumble through a chaotic spring holiday. Mr. Reginald and the Bunnies is represented by Ohlswanger Literary.
