Local author Hal Price and illustrator Michael Bayouth won the inaugural Bedside Reading Book Cover Awards for their chapter book, “A Heart’s Journey Home.” The book supports the Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation. 

“It has been a magical experience working with such an amazing talent like Michael Bayouth!” Hal Price said. 

“We first met for lunch in Carpinteria on May 26, 2018 and since then have created two international bestselling children’s books. I’m excited that this award recognizes Michael’s unique talents in design, layout, art and character development! We are honored that our book is continuing to thrive and support our designated local charity of choice, Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation!”
