Rickshaw Girl Updates

Lots of good news to share about Rickshaw Girl:

It's coming out in paperback from Charlesbridge February 2008.

The book joins some wonderful titles on lists compiled by Fuse No. 8 and Mother Reader of best books of 2007 (so far).

It's on the Cochecho Readers' Award list for third and fourth graders and recommended for second graders by Education.com.

Rickshaw Girl is reviewed by Anne-Marie Nichols over at Club Mom's A Readable Feast, who provides links to some great recipes from Bangladesh.

And for those of you in Maine (or those who want a foliage drive excuse), illustrator Jamie Hogan and I will be discussing our collaboration at Graves Library in Kennebunkport on Sunday, October 14th at 3 p.m.
