Gail Gauthier's Blog Tour, Day 1:

a%20girl%20a%20boy%20and%20three.jpgWelcome to the first stop on Gail Gauthier's blog tour!  Gail is celebrating the publication of her second book of Hannah and Brandon Stories, A Girl, a Boy, and Three Robbers (illustrated by Joe Cepeda; Putnam Juvenile, 2008).  The first, A Girl, a Boy, and a Monster Cat was recommended to me by Jen Robinson (at PBS Parents) when I was looking for a chapter book for my second-grader to read to his sister.  This tour is about chapter books in general as well as about Gail's latest book; in this interview, she answers my questions about what chapter books are (and are not) and some things to keep in mind when writing them.  [See interview here.]

Nice interview! I'll look forward to reading more.

(By the way, we finished The Naughty Little Sister Stories last night. Unintentional side effect: I think raincoats in our house will forever more be "Wait! I have to get my mackintosh!")

Yes, I thought it was a nice interview, too! Thank you.

How funny that The Naughty Little Sister stories were mentioned in these same comments! Gail's stories have the same humor and fun the Naughty Little Sister stories do!

Nice interview, anamaria!

Great interview, Anamaria and Gail. I especially liked the question about the inspiration for Buttercup.
