The one constant theme of Kate DiCamillo’s writing is hope in the midst of unfortunate circumstances, and her readers of all ages have come to expect it and appreciate it. The title character of DiCamillo’s new book, Raymie Nightingale, emerges as yet another memorable personality, this one inspired by DiCamillo herself as a young girl. Our hope is that Kate never stops writing. Also in this issue, interviews with Ylleya Fields, Alane Adams, Rita Campbell, and Alexa Walker. Our special contributor this month is author Julie Woik, who tells us that yes, children do still read!

Add To Cart

Karolyn Grimes was just six years old when she played George Bailey’s daughter “Zuzu” in one of the most beloved holiday films of all time. Now 70 years later, she and illustrator Karen Deming have released a children’s book, Zuzu’s Petals: A Dream of It’s a Wonderful Life, which builds on the movie’s lasting message of hope.

Also in this issue, we meet R.W. Alley, the illustrator of the beloved Paddington Bear series; a comedian called Piff the Magic Dragon who will leave you scratching your head; Tynea Lewis, LitPick’s site administrator who has been recognized for her contributions to children’s literature; and JoAnn Wagner, who had no idea that the throwaway trinket would ultimately lead her to a successful second career as a children’s book author.
