Author Fan Face-off: A Steve Sheinkin Video Production

It’s been a horrible week. I don’t say that lightly (and it’s only Tuesday) but I say it honestly. The news is awful. If you are like me, you occasionally need something to take your mind off of the awfulness, if only for a little while.

With that in mind, I am pleased to introduce to you today a new Steve Sheinkin series. From the award-winning author that brought you the Walking and Talking series it is . . .

Author Fan Face-off!!!!

The rules are simple. An author and a mega fan of that author’s books go head-to-head, answering trivia questions about that writer’s series. Steve is always present, as is co-creator K-5 librarian and blogger (Librarian Leaps) Stacey Rattner. These vids contain good books and smart kids. What’s not to love?

Here then, are the videos in the series that have come out so far:

Video #1: Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library

Video #2: The Great Greene Heist

Video #3: The Miscalculations of Lightning Girl

Video #4: Spy School

And this just in! I hear from Steve that Video #5 will be released this Thursday and will star none other than Cece Bell!

Well done, Stacey and Steve. Zoom for good instead of evil.

    I agree. This has been a horrible week. These videos are wonderful! A little bit like Battle of the Books, but delightful to have a young reader and the author of the book as contestants. I enjoyed watching them and look forward to more. Thank you, Betsy.
