Happy to report that Born to Fly has gotten two more starred reviews, from School Library Journal and the The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books. And here’s a really great new one from Shelf Awareness. (Yes, I particularly like the “barn burner” line)…

New Review for Born to Fly!

Share your comments...

Nice words from Booklist on my upcoming book, Born to Fly! Sheinkin’s story-like narration puts readers right in the action, making them gasp and cheer along with the fliers… This book soars as it details these often overlooked figures from history.” [starred review]

Walking and Talking with M.T. Anderson

Recently (when there was still two feet of snow on the ground) I got the chance to visit M.T. Anderson in Vermont and interview him about being chosen for ALA’s Margaret A. Edwards Award. Of course, it just had to be a comic! Thanks to School Library Journal for posting this one.

New Time Twisters Coming!

Share your comments...

In between writing my ‘serious’ nonfiction books, I’ve had a lot of fun coming up with history/comedy mashups for my new Time Twisters chapter book series. Books 3 and 4 in the series – Neil Armstrong and Nat Love, Space Cowboys, and Amelia Earhart and the Flying Chariot – will be out June 25. Publishers Weekly just had a nice review of Amelia Earhart’s uninvited visit to the ancient Olympics, calling it “a graceful blend of true history and outrageous adventure.” Exactly the mix I was going for!

Advance copies of Born to Fly!

Share your comments...

It’s always an exciting day to get my first look at the advance copies of a new book. Of course, I secretly know they’re still full of typos… but still, it finally feels like the book is almost here. My new one, Born To Fly, tells the story of the 1929 Women’s Air Derby, the first-ever women’s cross-country airplane race – a nine-day, 2,800-mile contest full of adventure, controversy, and, yes, crashes. Lots more about the plot and main characters to come – but the photos alone tell such a great story…

Walking and Talking with Jerry Craft

Share your comments...

The most popular book with my kids so far this year is Jerry Craft’s new graphic novel The New Kid. I’m a very big fan too, and it’s great to see the book getting so much well-deserved attention. Jerry came to my local bookstore, Northshire in Saratoga Springs, and I grabbed the opportunity to interview him for my comic. Check it out here!

How is writing a new novel like giving orders, like crossing a desert, like riding a sine wave? Kenneth Oppel explains in this new Walking and Talking comic…

Walking and Talking with Cece Bell

Here’s a new Walking and Talking comic, with the amazing and hilarious Cece Bell! We ran into each other at a conference in Frostburg, Maryland, so of course I asked if she’d be willing to star in an episode of my comic. I got to ask lots of questions I’ve been wondering about, including this one…
