Megan McDonald interview

Dina Rabinovitch talks to Megan McDonald about writing, Judy Moody, and the ascension of Stink for the Guardian.

Here's a sample of the interview:
  • "That maligned breed, the little brother, just hit a home run. Ordinarily, 'tolerated' is the highest condition to which the breed aspires, and Judy Moody's younger brother, Stink, was no exception....'Stink is a lot like me,' explains McDonald, 'because I was the youngest. So he's actually easier for me to write in a way, having a bossy big sister, because I know what that's like.'"
