In our summer edition of Canadian Children’s Book News you’ll find articles by Adrienne Kress, Naseem Hrab and Josh Holinaty about writing humour for kids and why it should be taken more seriously. You’ll also get to know a whole lot more about the genre-hopping imagination of Gordon Korman in an interview conducted by Marylynn Miller Oke and our ‘Bookmark!’ column is chock full of humorous books for kids from kindergarten to Grade 12 so they can laugh their way through the summer.
Jessica Scott Kerrin also contributed an article about record keeping for authors and Roxanne Deans interviewed John Ibbitson, author of The Landing, which is being sold to raise funds for the CCBC.
