Thumbs up from School Library Journal!

One of the (many, many) wonderful things about living in Colorado is being a full two hours behind the east coast–meaning that, even though I wake up at a pretty reasonable hour most days (around 7:20 or so), people in New York are at their desks by then, and have sometimes already sent me fun news by e-mail.

Today, such an e-mail was waiting from my editor, letting me know that All Four Stars had received its first industry review–and that it was a good one! Hooray!

The full text will be published in May, but here’s a fun excerpt:

The [restaurant-reviewing] plan goes disastrously and hilariously awry, but Gladys and fine food ultimately triumph. The characters are well drawn…Give this one to your young foodies.
-SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

Also, last week, NYPL librarian Betsy Bird featured All Four Stars on her SLJ blog, Fuse #8, along with some other fabulous summer releases coming from Penguin Young Readers.

Many thanks to SLJ for the love–Gladys & I love librarians right back!
