- Andrea Beaty, writer, Iggy Peck, Architect, and Rosie Revere, Engineer, and one of the goddesses of rhyming kids’ books in the world today (not to mention smart, science-y kids’ picture books!).
- Barbara Reid, writer and illustrator of Picture a Tree, The Subway Mouse, Fox Walked Alone, and many, many more. As a Canadian, I take full credit for Barbara Reid and consider her illustrations (and stories) a national treasure we have given to the world. I hope that doesn’t sound condescending; I read tons of other kidlit, but there will always be a special place in my heart for Canadians.
I’ve already finished the (mini-)interviews with both of these writers, but I’m too wrapped up in the holiday of Passover at the moment to possibly do them justice. So in the meantime, click through, buy the books, get reading, and you’ll be all geared up for their interviews – very very soon.
We also have a new(ish) writer coming up, Stacy Nyikos, whose new book, Toby, will be released in June. I’ll be reviewing the book and possibly interviewing Stacy as part of the book’s “blog tour.”
Planning little goodies like this is definitely the fun part of blogging. Now to make it all happen… somehow! :-)
