Okay, maybe you never wanted to know this much about me… but a group of third grade students at Castleton Elementary School in New York made this amazing movie/alphabet book all about my life and work. I’d even forgotten some of this stuff – but it’s all true!

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

Share your comments...

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!
