Sometimes, an act of mischief happens along and you end up sending out a blog post accidentally.
But other times, an act of mischief has to do with children’s literature and Wild Things, the book (and website) that reveals “secret lives, scandalous turns, and some very funny surprises” about the books you grew up with and loved to bits.
Betsy Bird, Julie Danielson, and Peter D. Sieruta gathered all these scathingly brilliant anecdotes (and included a few leftovers for us on the website!) so we can all enjoy a little kidlit mischief.
(Um…without sending blog goofs out into the world–)
I had seen this somewhere and it looked interesting, but now that you’ve blogged about it, it’s official. I’m going to have to get this and read it!
Yep, I’m putting it on my library list, too!
This looks like fun, and I can use some fun right about now. Gonna check it out. 🙂
Fun is good, Lisa–go for it! 😉
I watched Betsy’s interviews on Kidlit TV about this book. Great stories in there!
Kidlit TV–how have I missed this? Need to check that out!
Yup, already have it on my NOOK!
Ooh, didn’t think of that, Gail!
I will have to check it out.
Goofs? We all make them on line. I mistakenly sent my story, My Big Behind, to the Smithsonian! I didn’t breathe for a week.
I bet they laughed, though, Linda! 🙂
