New Wisconsin Kiddy Lit News

Here are January doings with Wisconsin’s stunningly talented writers for children and young adults that have crossed the CWW radar:

Gayle Rosengren says she’s “over the moon” that her MG historical fiction book, What the Moon Said, is among the outstanding children’s titles–especially, Gayle says, “those by Crystal Chan, Jamie Swenson, Ann Bausum, and Thelma Godin who are Wisconsin SCBWI friends!–that have been named CCBC (Cooperative Children’s Book Center) CHOICES for 2015.” Congratulations to all of you exceptional authors.

Silvia Acevedo’s debut young adult novel God Awful Loser, which she and her illustrator husband Jeff Miracola created under the auspices of Three Points Publishing, will be available this spring.

Janet Halfmann’s book Animal Teachers, was chosen by The Book Vine for Children, which lists and sells books for infants, toddlers and preschoolers, as a “Top 25 Pick for 2015.”  Here’s the link:
