My children's favorite book: Aside from Ozma of Oz, my 6 year-old daughter has recently informed me that she likes "sad, real non-fiction about real things." I have no idea what that means. She and her younger sister also really like 13 Words by Lemony Snicket, which is how they know words like "despondent" and "haberdashery." (I swear, they're not pretentious. They just really like the book.)
An illustrator I adore: Maurice Sendak, hands down.
If my life were turned into a children's book the title would be: Don't Let the Pigeon Wake Mom Up Before Six.
