Companions of the Night and Being Dead

Surf over to my other blog, spookycyn, to read two story behind the story interviews with Vivian Vande Velde on Companions of the Night and Being Dead.

Ever wonder what everybody else is reading? Check out what’s On My Night Table from Jacqueline Davies. I’m also fond of her On My Mind page, currently pointing out that “The Problem Is: Books Are Not Pigeons.”

Visit author/illustrator Maurie J. Manning, in particular “Hidden Pictures: One Way To Break Into Children’s Illustration.”

Learn about “The Changing World of Picture Books” with Louise McClenathan from the Institute of Children’s Literature, a chat transcript dated Jan. 6, 2005.

Unfortunately, this resource is too timely: Explaining World Tragedy to Children by Chick Moorman and Thomas Haller from Modern Mom.
