Good News from Wisconsin Children’s Writers

Ann Bausum‘s two companion releases about Stubby, the World War I hero dog — one book, Sgt. Stubby, for adults, the other, Stubby the War Dog, for young readers, both published by National Geographic — are getting lots of ink. Here’s Ann’s latest report:

“My pal Stubby keeps landing press coverage and seems off to a good start, both on the children’s side and for adults. Recent stories, mentions, and reviews have appeared in American History magazine, the Hartford Courant (CT), the Wall Street Journal, the Seattle Times, and on a blog called Literary Dogs. Check out my Facebook page for details:

This from Janet Halfmann: “…my new book, Animal Teachers, to be released in August by Blue Apple Book,s has received a great review from Kirkus Reviews: ‘Nicely connecting the child to the natural world, this would be a useful opener for a unit about animals as well as a title to share with young animal lovers.’ ANIMAL TEACHERS by Janet Halfmann, Katy Hudson”

Lisa Albert says, “My Enslow biography, STEPHENIE MEYER: AUTHOR OF THE TWILIGHT SAGA, was released as an audiobook by Recorded Books. The narrator is the reader of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and Jodi Picolt’s books. Recorded Books approached Enslow a couple of years ago, and I was informed of that, but didn’t know it was actually made and released until I was updating promo material and came across it!”

Dori Chaconas‘s Cork and Fuzz continue their adventures in A CORK AND FUZZ CHRISTMAS PICTURE BOOK.Here’s her announcement:

“I’m pleased to announce that Viking has asked for a Cork and Fuzz picture book to help celebrate Cork and Fuzz’s tenth EZ reader and both will be out next year. The picture book is a Christmas story, and after much work, three rejected attempts, (and anguish on my part – as my critique group can tell you) they made an offer on the fourth story.”
