The world mourned the loss of one if its most creative and imaginative authors this March when Terry Pratchett's Twitter account tweeted the following:
AT LAST, SIR TERRY, WE MUST WALK TOGETHER.

When I was five the only thing I wanted to be more than a unicorn was a writer. Some pretty famous works were written by people under the age of 20: here’s a round-up of some of the reads you can get from the library by teen authors.

You've read all about Katniss, Peeta, and Gale, but have you checked out the awesome series Suzanne Collins wrote BEFORE The Hunger Games?
If you recall, last year we posted about the Battle of the Kids' Books, hosted for the past few years by School Library Journal. This is a bracket-style showdown between some of the best books for kids & teens, with each matchup "judged" by a well-known author. And it's that time of year again!
Man, it's been a bad year for authors, and it's still only March! We lost another of the greats on Saturday, as British fantasy author Diana Wynne Jones passed away after a two-year battle with cancer.
Wynne Jones published books that were equally loved by children, teens, and adults, and writers as varied as J.K. Rowling to Neil Gaiman claim her as one of their greatest influences.
This just in!
In a press release today from Random House Children's Books, it was announced that the final book of the wildly-popular Christopher Paolini "Inheritance" series will be released in November 2011! Wahoo!!
The magazine School Library Journal is running its second annual "Battle of the Kids' Books," which pits 16 of the very best books for young people of the year, judged by some of the most famous authors of children's books.
Children's books and teen books; fiction and nonfiction, they are all thrown in together to pick out what is THE. BEST. KIDS. BOOK. of the year.
Author-judges include folks such as Karen Hesse, R.L. Stine, Barry Lyga, Francisco X. Stork, Karen Cushman and Richard Peck.
It is a sad day for fans of Mossflower Woods!
