My fourth grade daughter loves Piper Reed and has entered her name in the drawing. Piper is a great character and I used her to hook my daughter in third grade (using an audiobook of the first book) when she was unsuccessfully picking just-right books for herself. I give Piper Reed some of the credit for helping me turn that corner with my daughter from reluctant reader to book-lover. Look for an interview with the author soon!

I’m so excited to announce something fun and new (at least for me)!!

Starting this upcoming week I am going to begin posting one clue each day (four total) about an upcoming KidLit author who has agreed to a “blog interview”. The clues will start general and get more specific with each day. If you can guess the identity of the author in a posted comment before the day of the “reveal” you will be entered into a drawing to receive a new book by that author.  

I’m modeling the Mystery Author after a classroom activity that I posted about in fall 08 called Mystery Reader. The link to that post is here

In my definition a KidLit author can write anything from board book up through young adult. Only limitation on winner of contest is they need to have a U.S. mailing address.
