You'll Drive Me Wild

"Harriet Harris was a pesky child. She didn't mean to be. She just was."

Yes, yes! Those are the opening lines to Mem Fox's, Harriet, You'll Drive Me Wild! The illustrator Marla Frazee (who also illustrated The Seven Silly Eaters and the Boston Horn Honor book, A Couple of Boys Have the Best Week Ever) has a wonderful dedication in the front of that book. It reads: To my sister, Janel- transplendent amidst the Legos. It made me think of you Kim, and our last conversation.

Speaking of transplendent and silly,
Jim Averbeck and Maria van Lieshout had a lot of fun at ALA! You can see their author and illustrator interviews here. My favorite is Mo Willems*****************


  1. Awwww sooo sweet and you gotta love that BRATZ head on the leash!
    Okay,that song sounds really familiar....only it's in Dutch. Anyone?
    In this house there are legos, legos everywhere, even under the computer chair!

  2. I don't know about the song, but we are approaching Oktoberfest!


We love to read your thoughts : )
