I had a great time hanging out with Brianna DuMont, author of FAMOUS PHONIES, at the SCBWI table at ISMLA yesterday. I met her at the National Louis Author/Illustrator Showcase in September, so it was fun to see her again.
FAMOUS PHONIES is the start of a seriously fun, beautifully produced nonfiction series.
Illinois is a talented state. Among the books displayed, I spied Sarah Aronson's BELIEVE and BEYOND LUCKY, Carol Brendler's RADIO GIRL, M. Molly Backes's THE PRINCESSES OF IOWA, and so many more!
