Malcolm continues to scamper his way onto some state children’s choice reading lists. Latest spotting–West Virginia. He’s in good company there!
I don’t think I shared this before, but I loved this book list from, well, Booklist, on animal detectives in kid lit:
Sniffing Out Clues: 12 Children’s Mysteries Solved by Animal Detectives.
Malcolm, Brian Lies, and I are featured in the most recent issue of Rodent Reader Quarterly, which is a super cute magazine devoted to pet rats. You can friend their Facebook page here. Also, the editor/author named her new pet rat Midnight, after…yes, Malcolm! I love that.
Look! Malcolm and Midnight are twins!
I’ll be at four (4!!) different elementary schools this Friday as part of the Chippewa Valley Book Festival. But I’m even more excited about attending some of the events. You should definitely check out their line-up of authors!
I have been squeezing every extra minute into writing time this last month. But an author’s got to read a little, too. Here are some of my favorites from this last month.
Finally, I was answering some reader mail the other day in which I was asked for some book suggestions for readers who loved Malcolm. This seemed like a really good idea that, as a librarian, I should have already done. So now I have a “ratty read alikes” list on my Malcolm webpage…and here. Enjoy!
