THE GOODS

The Nieman Journalism Lab interviewed me about The Goods, a syndicated kids' section I'm editing. The Goods will appear weekly in newspapers across the country, and will feature original content from some of the best children's writers and illustrators around. If you want to make sure you're getting The Goods, write your local paper and ask them to carry it.

BIRDS OF A FEATHER


Right now I am trying to think of a title for the next Brixton Brothers book. Here are some possibilities:

Mockingflock
The Mockingjays
Bird Wearing a Mock Turtleneck
Jay Wearing a Mock Turtleneck
Mimus dorsalis

Vote on your favorite! Actually I don't know how to set up one of those voting things and this joke doesn't seem good enough to justify learning. So maybe just read The Ghostwriter Secret!
