Mud Show Monday

I’ll be sharing a lot of exciting new books in the upcoming weeks and months. I also have some great authors scheduled to appear on the blog and I have some news about a new endeavor that I will be sharing later this week 🙂

Lots of exciting things happening, and I’m so thankful to all of you who read my blog and comment. You have no idea how much it means to know I have readers and friends who are excited about writing and reading children’s literature as much as I am.

Love to you all!

And now on with the show!


T0: Unicorn

From: Rabbit

Subject: You think you’re so great

Yeah, I’ve been talking to the Goat and Bob Shea. I read all about you in “Unicorn Thinks He’s Pretty Great.”

Goat told me how great you are. He told me how you made it rain cupcakes and turned a bunch of stuff into gold. Well you know what I have to say about that?

So what!?

I’m just a Rabbit but I can do cool stuff too. I can dig tunnels. Can you dig tunnels? Also, you see these feet? They’re lucky. That’s right…lucky. You ever heard of a lucky Unicorn foot?

No. Didn’t think so.

Goat can do great stuff too, but everyone will just have to see how it turns out because Rabbits also don’t spoil things, like parties, or book endings.

We’re all pretty great, and so is this book. Five stars are pretty great too.


girl in the well

To: The Girl In The Well

From: A Concerned Bystander

Subject: Hello down there!

Wow! You are really stuck in a well.

Karen Rivers captures your plight beautifully in “The Girl in the Well is Me” and I just had to pop over and send down some encouraging words.

Words like:

“Conserve your oxygen”

“Why would you want to be friends with those mean girls?”

“Is there anything else in the well?”

Oops, probably shouldn’t have mentioned the last bit…I’m sure there’s absolutely no creepy crawlies in there with you. No need to panic. I’m sure your new “friends” are getting help as we speak. Seriously, don’t panic. Remember you need to conserve oxygen.

Everything will be fine. Right?

I mean, you are stuck in a well, but this sort of thing happens all the time…right?

You’ve been down there a long time…I would send down some food or water or a book, but all I have is these stars. I’ll give you all five of them. They’re bright and shiny, and might help you see down there.

Oh, your arms are stuck?

I’ll just leave them up here then. You can get them when you get out…you will get out, right?

Professional Reader

I received an e-book of “The Girl in the Well is Me” from Net Galley and Algonquin Young Readers in exchange for my honest review.
