Grace Lin: KidLit Corner Edition

We were so honored to have the opportunity to Skype with the amazingly talented Grace Lin! Author of the Newbery Honor book, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon, she's also written and illustrated the charming "Year of..." series (starting with The Year of the Dog), and numerous picture books, including The Ugly Vegetables. We love Grace Lin!

In our interview with Grace, we got the details on how her family feels about being portrayed as fictional characters, whether she writes or illustrates first when tackling a story, and how she found her absolutely perfect dress for the Newbery Banquet.

Going with the Newbery theme, Michelle shares her favorite Newbery book, Catherine Called Birdy, by Karen Cushman, and Allison talks about The Mighty Miss Malone, the latest book from Newbery Medalist Christopher Paul Curtis.
