Niblings Announcement: New Niblings Nigh

The Niblings (a group consisting of bloggers Travis Jonker of 100 Scope Notes, Jules Danielson of Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast, Philip Nel of Nine Kinds of Pie, and Betsy Bird of A Fuse #8 Production) are pleased to announce two new inclusions into their happy little sphere.

To fill the much-needed YA slot, Mitali Perkins joins us. A distinguished author, responsible for such books as Rickshaw GirlBamboo PeopleSecret Keeper, and this April’s upcoming Tiger Boy, Mitali has maintained her blog, Mitali’s Fire Escape (http://www.mitaliblog.com/), since 2005, where she discusses books between cultures. You may also find her on Facebook or Twitter.

We’ve also been impressed by and big fans of the work of Minh Le for years. Not only has he been blogging for Book Riotthe Huffington Post, and Bottom Shelf Books, but he recently sold his debut picture book, Let Me Finish!, to Disney-Hyperion. You can also find him on Twitter.

We’re feeling pretty fantastic adding these to powerhouses to our roster.  Thanks to them and thanks to all of you for following The Niblings on Twitter and Facebook for all the best up-to-date children’s literature news.

Big time thanks to Hilary Leung for creating the LEGO Nibling image seen here.

  1. Very excited about Mitali Perkins joining you!

    I don’t know Minh Le, but if you three think he’s wonderful, I believe it and look forward to seeing what he posts.
