AchUKa: Children’s Books Web Site

Louder by Peni Griffin, an opinion column, from AchUKa children’s books. Peni is the author of numerous novels for young readers, most recently 11,000 Years Lost (Abrams, 2004), which is a middle grade time-travel adventure set in Texas. Involves very cool mammoths. By the way, Peni is also the person who first turned me on to The X-Files. She lives in nearby San Antonio.

AchUKa also offers a blog from editor Michael Thorn, featuring much news about the children’s/YA book world. An article caught my eye…

“Chick lit” for teen readers comes of age by Kristin Finan from the Feb. 9 Houston Chronicle (emphasis on mass market; no mention of literary YA).
