I just signed up a new YA novel by a talented author, and in researching some history on the project, I found my way to a really cool author website I wanted to share. Wendy Mass is a prolific children’s book author, and I found myself drawn to her Author Pals section, which is like a who’s who in the children’s market. Her connections to a very long list of prominent and well-respected authors are impressive, and what I love even more are her personal suggestions for favorite titles from each author to check out. I found myself taking notes and going online to order copies of some of the suggested books. It’s a little like having a personal shopper for a wide range of children’s books! If you have an interest in this category, it’s well worth checking out. Take a look and see if you have any favorites to add–let us know.
