  1. So cool to see this featured on your blog! The Kids Author Carnival has a pretty informative tumblr with a more detailed list of the authors, an overview of the mission and philosophy behind it, and some hints at what to expect from the event:

    (I gotta say, this is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime historical moment. Mainly because this will probably be the only time in all of history that my name will be on a list with so many phenomenal authors. Unless they do a “one of these things is not like the other” game some time or something. So yet another reason not to miss the carnival.)

    You should contact Chris Grabenstein, author of Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library and co-author of the I Funny Series with James Patterson. His books and presentations are wonderful!
