Summer With Alice

Monday, June 20, 2011


I'm thinking it's possibly the first day of summer vacation for some lucky kids out there today! I'll have to write an ode to summer vacation (ahhh summer reading...long car trips...sun dappled FREEDOM!) but for now I'm happily spending this summery day with Alice Kathleen McKinley while I repackage her series by the prolific Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. If I had met Alice in the 80's I think we would have been friends. Do you have any extra-special summer plans?

:)
I especially like the birthday party one...;)

I hear you on summer... I STILL to this day get those "crazy jittery-I-Want-To-Be-Outdoors-NOW" feeling that summer used to give me whenever school was out... :)

Hi, I'm a huge fan of the Alice series and I just found out about your covers the other day. I was wondering how many covers will you be doing for the series, because I have a feeling I'm going to have to add them to my bookshelf now, they are too cute to resist. Thank you!
