What's Up, Chicken. . .

Greetings blog friends!

2015 has gotten off to a great start for HENNY and me :)

First up,
Henny had the honor of being interviewed by Mr. Pig over at The Little Crooked Cottage and then was a literary lunch star in her very own bento box!
Check them out here:

and here:

Meanwhile, we're off again to New York!
We will be visiting the  East Harlem Scholars Academy in Manhattan. Henny has been selected as their Book of the Month for February, and I can't wait to share her story and some fun art projects with the kids!

Then we go to the SCBWI NY conference. It's always an informative and fun time with the peeps of the kidlit world.

Finally, the weekend wraps up with a visit to the quintessential children's bookshop,
Books of Wonder, for their February Picture Book BonanzaHenny and I are so proud to have been invited to be on a panel with the amazing Matt de la Pena and his new picture book, "Last Stop on Market Street," Toni Yuly and her new little picture book gem, "Night Owl," and author/illustrator Migy, with his colorful pb, "Away We Go."
Details here:

If you're in the New York City area, please stop on by and say hello!

I hope 2015 finds you all well and thanks, as ever, for stopping by!
Check back soon for some whisperings about PEDDLES ;)


  1. I see what you did there....'peeps of the kidlit world'.....lol Makes me kinda' wish I still lived on the island so I could take the train into the city to meet up! No, wait....all that snow. Second thought I'll stick with virtual contact! ;) Have a great trip! Stay warm.

  2. Good to see you back and charging full tilt into 2015 with all your well earned success, Elizabeth.

    Don't forget to take time-out to breath :0))

  3. Sounds like you and Henny are going to be very busy!!

  4. Hello Elizabeth,

    Well you have certainly started the year at a cracking ( no pun intended) pace. We are delighted that things are going so well for you. So very exciting and all thoroughly well deserved.

    And, Henny is becoming a Legend in her own Lunchtime. We are certain that the peeps of the kidlit world are going to shriek with excitement when she is in town. How we wish that we could be amongst them.

    Whatever, we wish you safe travelling and may 2015 bring peace, joy and prosperity....without a scrambled egg in sight! J and L xxx
