Who are your favorite children's book authors? Name one or more in the comments, and tell us what you like about them. I have several favorites, but I'll name one in this post: Barbara Park, who wrote the series of books about Junie B. Jones and her adventures. Even little boys who never read "girl books" like Junie B.!
We chose "Junie B." as the literary name for a kitten we took in temporarily in the summer of 2008. If you wonder why we first named her "Dickens," read her story here.
