Here's a sneak peak of some of the authors we have on our bookshelves that my kiddos are hoping to get autographs from:
No more need be said. Avi.
She is the New York Times bestselling author of three YA series, including the "girl" spy school series, Gallagher Girls, including "I'd Tell You I Love You But Then I'd Have To Kill You".
My 8th grade students LOVED this series and I've read them all, although I've never reviewed them.
Thanhhà Lại is the New York Times best-selling author of "Inside Out & Back Again," which won both a National Book Award and a Newbery Honor. This semi-autobiographical, debut novel in verse is part of the eighth-grade curriculum in New York and is taught throughout the world.
We've read Story Thieves, but I never reviewed it as by the time we discovered it my kiddos were too old to really enjoy it, and my son is in the process of devouring the Revenge of Magic series. I'm writing a review for the first one today!
Jon Scieszka has been writing books to inspire kids for longer than he can remember. He is the founder of a literacy initiative to connect boys with reading called Guys Read.
Teachers Note: His multi-volume collection of short stories is getting kinda old, but the publisher offers comprehension questions for each story in four of the volumes! See my teacher's review, Short Story Questions.
Tui T. Sutherland is the author of the New York Times and USA Today best-selling Wings of Fire series.
If you missed it last holiday, here's the review in which I suggested the WoF series, as my daughter's all time favorite -- Boxed Sets for Gift Giving: Oldies but Goodies.
One year my daughter's math teacher assigned getting an autograph and picture with a visiting TFOB author, and this is who we chose. She was quite gracious. It started our "autograph collecting" TFOB tradition.
