  1. Author: Cynthia Rylant

    Book(s): Too many to list! Henry and Mudge, The Van Gogh Cafe, Every Living Thing
    I’ve been thinking about this all day! I’m happy with my choice!

  2. As a young reader I really really enjoyed Julie Edwards (formally Andrews, as in The Sound of Music). I read and reread Mandy, about an orphan girl who creates her own oasis in a cottage she finds in the woods, and The Last of the Really Great Wangdoodles in which three siblings go on fantastic adventures into the imagination guided by an eccentric professor. As an adult I appreciate short stories the most and so, although they are pretty different in style and subject, Flannery O’Connor and Philip K. Dick top my list.

  3. My favorite author from when I was a child AND into sharing books with students is Bill Peet. I was first attracted to the illustrations. I’m sure I took Farewell to Shady Glade from the library every week just to look at cute rabbits, raccoon and even frogs sitting on the tree branch waiting forlornly for the train. Favorites to share are Buford the Bighorn, The Pinkish,Purplish, Bluish Egg, Chester the Worldy Pig and The Wingdingdilly. There are so many more too. I also love sharing his autobiography as well. What an amazing man.
    So Happy Author’s Day to Bill Peet. I hope everyone enjoys a wonderful book by your favorite author on Tuesday.

  4. Author: Patricia Reilly Giff

    Book: Pictures of Hollis Woods

    I love Patricia Reilly Giff’s books because the characters become so real that I miss them when I finish the book.
