I promise I'll catch you all up on the conference tomorrow when I'm home and settled. But, in the meantime, I wanted to share my starstruck moment at SCBWI--a meeting with Linda Sue Park and Lisa Yee. (I only now noticed that Lisa included a Peep in the picture.)

Linda Sue Park's Project Mulberry is one of my favorite Middle Grade novels of all time. I think it's a classic, even though it was published only in 2005. If you haven't read it, put it on your list. It's wonderful.

Lisa Yee's Millicent Min, Girl Genius, Stanford Wong Flunks Big Time, and So Totally Emily Ebers are comic gold. Lisa is my daughter's favorite writer of non-fantasy fiction, and it's easy to understand why.
