  1. Today I stopped into the local bookstore and read the latest issue of The Horn Book.

    I have several friends who are writers and animators for Big Honking Hollywood Film Studios. Today one of those friends informed me that his studio’s summer sequel to a CG “family film” features the male hero saving his adult female colleague from a male villain using a Fart Gun.

    Please continue to review, promote and celebrate the best in children’s literature.

    Dear lordy god, please.

    Thank you M. (Of course, if you subscribed you would help guarantee our future!)

  3. Roger, I dearly want to subscribe. But I’m working part-time for less than the minimum wage at Pizza Hut, which means a subscription is far beyond my means. If/when I come into some more money, my dream is to subscribe to The Horn Book and to join the SCBWI.

    I wish we had scholarships. Until then, lobby your libraries!
