How I Ended Up Reading 4 Books at Once

The Edge of the Forest, September Issue

Another thing that I missed this weekend was the publication of the September issue of The Edge of the Forest. The Edge is an online journal about children's literature, edited by the talented Kelly Herold of Big A little a and written by a top-notch team of writers from across the kidlitosphere.

This month's issue features an interview with Rick Riordan (author of the hugely popular Percy Jackson and the Olympians series) by Camille Powell from Book Moot; an entertaining article about booktalking to seventh graders by Pam Coughlan / MotherReader; a look at Peter Pan and the book's sequels and prequels by Allie from Bildungsroman; and a spotlight article about fantasy author Catherine Webb by Michele Fry from Scholar's Blog. There's also lots of great stuff in the usual monthly columns: book reviews, recommendations from kids, writer interviews, and best of the blogs.

If you are at all interested in children's literature, I highly recommend that you check out the new issue of The Edge of the Forest. Happy reading!
