A few bits and bobs from around and about:
I’m currently reading Blue Balliett’s latest book, The Calder Game. So I enjoyed the recent interview in Newsweek in which Blue discusses lots of things, from mobiles to movie rights.
I just finished The Adoration of Jenna Fox this morning. Talk about a page-turner. (Review to come soon!) I’ve been thinking about it all day long. So many discussion-inspiring topics in this book. If you’ve read it, or if you haven’t, you should check out the great interview with Mary E. Pearson over at Cynsations. It makes me love the book even more.
As if I needed another reason to get myself a copy of Maureen Johnson’s latest book. In her review, bookshelves of doom calls Suite Scarlett, “fun times a bazillion.” And it’s going to be a series! Woot!
Then there is this treasure:
I’ve got a few DVDs of the British version of Creature Comforts, but I hadn’t seen this one. Ha ha ha. Thanks Shelf Talker for sharing. (Can you get over the dog who is a “print-maker.” I guess art really is in the eye of the beholder!). This short seems to belong with Jon Scieszka’s Seen Art?.
