I've been trying to decide which of Sid Fleischman's books is my favorite: By the Great Horn Spoon? The Trouble Begins at 8? The Midnight Horse? Newbery award winner, The Whipping Boy?...oooh so many great choices. And more to look forward to with Sir Charlie about to arrive. So far I haven't been able to pick just one.
If you haven't visited Sid Fleischman's website...do. Take a moment to read the biography of an extraordinary man and well-beloved author. There's wisdom there for readers and for writers that is well worth a look.
Thanks Sid, for everything.
