Interview and Peter Nimble Giveaway!

I met Little Reviewer Elizabeth Johnson and her cartoonist husband last October in Portland (a city that the Washington Post has recently declared less awesome than Pittsburgh).1   This week, she’s running an author interview and Peter Nimble giveaway.  All you have to do is click here and write a comment on her site!  Those of you who resolved to read more blind-thief stories in the new year will finally have your chance!  While you’re at it, check out the interview, in which I reveal my childhood gripe about the Oz series and my favorite illustration from the book.

    That illustration is my favorite in the book, which I need to re-read when I have not recently had rib-removing surgery, which is any time now. I love any balloon’d airship, but the perspective on yours (or, I guess, Sir Tode’s) is wondrous.

    Until reading the interview, I have never given serious thought to the past tense of “wing it.” At first, “winged it” seemed wrong, but what else could it possibly be? “wang it” is wrong for so many reasons. Oh, the many mysteries and complexities of the english language!

  • Rib-removing surgery? That sounds miserable! (And slightly biblical.) Mary and I wish you both a speedy recovery. Here’s hoping we can hang out a bunch in the new year!
