Blog of the Week

I love reading the blogs of other children's authors. Something about reading blogs really appeals to my nosy -- ahem, I mean "curious" -- investigative reporter side. It's a bit like eavesdropping on a really good conversation, which we all know as writers, is simply "research," right?

Middle grade author Lisa Yee has a hilarious blog that I love to read. It's definitely one of my favorites. Not only does Lisa feature a TON of cool pictures on her blog but she also has a little stuffed Peep appropriately named "Peepy" who accompanies her on her adventures. It's so fun to see how a best-selling author -- we're talking Scholastic here, people -- spends her time. Maybe someday, that will be me... (Hey, a girl can dream, can't she?)

If you're not familiar with Lisa's work, check out her book, Millicent Min, Girl Genius. Like Lisa's blog, Millicent Min, is a heartwarming and hilarious book. Lisa also has several other best-selling books, including an American Girl book in the new Julie series, Good Luck Ivy. How cool is that?

  1. I have this book and have read it... I like books about smart people! It was a few years ago, though, so I don't remember it well.
