The Search for Wondla

I'm being interviewed over at Nicole's blog!!! Check it out!!!

Now for today's post, short, sweet and AWESOME!

Tony DiTerlizzi knows magic.

Imagination is definitely part of his world, he's both an award-winning author and illustrator.

His children's books Wondla, Spiderwick Chornicles, Spider & Fly are loved by many.

He's visiting Blue Willow Bookshop on October 19th and you'd be crazy not to attend! I look forward to watching him bring his stories to life.













What authors inspire magic?
Also just so everyone knows I'm going to have a very special face to face interview with Tony on the 19th before the book signing!! Oh yes, random questions will be asked! Any questions you want to ask him? I'll see what I can make happen! Also he'll be the participating in the Flat Stanley tour (which I'll be discussing next week! Trust me, you want to join!!!)

I loved the Spiderwick chronicles when I was little!
Too bad the movie adaptation wasn't as successful. I really adore Freddie Highmore, who played Simon and Jared. Amazing little actor, that one.
