Winging "Pond Scum" Your Way

Congratulations to Jen Robinson, who sent in the first submission for the upcoming Carnival of Children's Literature. Jen wins a copy of Alan Silberberg's middle-grade novel,  Pond Scum, which was given a thumbs-up by School Library JournalBooklist, and the Washington Post. You can read an excerpt from the book at the author's fun web site. Alan used to write for all kinds of kids' TV shows, and the site bounces along with a good sense of humor.

Reminder: The 2nd Carnival of Children's Literature takes place here on Monday, March 6th. Entry deadline is Friday, March 3rd. More details here. If you missed the launch of kid-lit carnival season, do visit Here in the Bonny Glen.

Meanwhile, the blog A Chair, A Fireplace, and A Tea Cozy gives y'all  the Top Ten Reasons to submit. Catch a wave and head over.

Thanks, Susan! I look forward to my book. And I hope that lots of other people will submit posts for the carnival, too. Have a great day!
