We were sad to learn that Andrew Clements passed away late last month. Perhaps best known as the author of Frindle, Clements wrote over eighty books, many of them school stories. Recent titles include The Friendship War and The Losers Club; read Roger Sutton's Five Questions interview with Clements about The Loser's Club here. Look for more in an upcoming issue of The Horn Book Magazine.

Such sad news! What a terrific person, a remarkable author, and a wonderful teacher! This is such sad news. I wish his family and friends peace and love. May they know what an impact he had on me and my students.
