Macedonia Elementary School

Carmen had an AMAZING visit at Macedonia Elementary School in Canton, GA! They were kind enough to share a few photos of their day with Carmen. If you have photos of your school visit with Carmen, or would like to bring her to your school, e-mail me at DeedyBooking@gmail.com. We would love to work with you!

Macedonia's library was amazing!

The kids got a sneak peak at one of the manuscripts Carmen is working on. Kids give the best feedback! (They are VERY honest critics!)

In the Company of Some Incredible Mice

Jonathan Hunt, who writes the Mock Newbery Blog, Heavy Medal, on the School Library Journal website put together a two part series of book reviews. The first, Of Mice…, features books full of glorious mice, while his second post, …and Men, looks at books all about interesting and famous men. The Cheshire Cheese Cat has found its way onto the list of exceptional mice (although there is an interesting sounding book on Charles Dickens in the …and Men post!). Be sure to check out the post to read about The Cheshire Cheese Cat as well as such wonderful titles as Bless this Mouse (Louis Lowry) and Young Fredle (Cynthia Voigt).

James Preller’s Blog? Why Yes, Please.

Carmen had the opportunity to do a FABULOUS interview with the marvelous and erudite, James Preller. They discuss all things Cheshire Cheese Cat and more! It’s a great way to learn more about how the book came to be, as well as get a sneak peek at Barry Moser’s artwork for the book. You can read the full interview here.
