Michigander Monday: Shutta Crum Reprise

One of the all-time neatest people in the world of children's books is Shutta Crum. Today for Michigander Monday I thought I'd "re-run" her profile of a year ago. If you didn't catch it then, click here.

Shutta's tenth and newest book, Thunder-Boomer!, just earned another starred review. Starred reviews in the review literature are rare, and garnering more than one happens only in the case of a truly exceptional book. Thunder-Boomer! has so far been starred in Kirkus Reviews, School Library Journal, and Horn Book Magazine; and now, The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books. This is well-deserved praise. Hurrah, Shutta!

Visit Shutta's web site and blog here.

And then go find yourself a copy of Thunder-Boomer!

Unrelated to Shutta's book but also along the reprise theme...

Last week I was light on blog postings, and only posted twice other than Michigander Monday. I meant to time the second post, Feeling Kreativ?, to appear later in the week, but hit the wrong button and posted it immediately, right on top of another blog entry I'd just done. So you may not have seen the first blog entry, "This Old House" for Regular People. Thus this little reprise of that post.

Incidentally, I'll probably be light on blog postings again this week. We'll see how the schedule goes. Until then, enjoy a great week!
