Seymour on Bookie Woogie & Lynn Interviewed on Growing Readers, The Children's Book Review

A couple of fun things to note as I head back to town from a great writers' retreat.
a very demanding Stink Bug, by Isaac

Z Dad and Z Kids reviewed SEYMOUR on Bookie Woogie. If you haven't had a chance to see their Bookie Woogie site, where "Three kids and their dad talk about books," please check it out. The talented kids there (Lily, Grace & Isaac) do amazing art in response to the books they read. ZDad (Aaron Zenz) captures their conversations. The result? Consistently wonderful, funny and spontaneous responses to books from the children's points of view. Thanks to ZDad, Lily (age 6), Gracie (age 8) and Isaac (age 10) for their thoughts on The Amazing Trail of Seymour Snail, and their totally cool snail art.

You can see more of the kids' wonderful art at Chicken Nugget Lemon Tooty (Selected pictures from Isaac, Grace, and Lily including "Illustration Friday" posts).

I was recently interviewed by Amanda at The Children's Book Review: Growing Readers site. Please take a look.

I LOVE the stink bug picture!!
It reminds me of one my niece did of a chocolate cake with one slice missing. It was screaming, "do you want a piece of me?"

Your family is very talented.

Hi Lynn,
I have a blog for new writers where I have just posted tips on writing YA fiction using you as a great example of what to read and study. I included the book Shifty and your websites too. You are a wonderful example of what writers want to do and I love your stories. You are an inspiration to new writers like myself.
