More accolades this week for Ellen Booraem's middle-grade THE UNNAMEABLES!
School Library Journal says THE UNNAMEABLES has "a style and charm all its own," and the American Library Association's Booklist says "Patient readers who like a little quirk in their fantasy will enjoy this stick-it-to-the-status-quo romp."
And...you can catch up with Ellen on a couple of blogs! Here she is on the ever-popular Cynsations, talking about her writing life. And then there's a really fun interview on Laura Bowers' Shop Talk
And...Happy Birthday, Jonathan Swift! (November 30, 1667)
