My inner child screamed with delight the first time I heard about Dev's picture book I DON'T WANT TO BE A FROG (which is fantastic by the way!). Take it away Dev.
These days, my favorite place to read is on our deck- which is also my favorite place to write! Our yard is lush and sunny. I find that I go from spot to spot- lying on the deck, sitting at the table, swinging on the swing as I read a book.
My favorite place to read as a child was under our stereo table. It was right next to a heater vent, and since I had the smallest room in the house, my mom let me camp out there as often as I wished. I would set up a blanket over my knees and the vent, a pillow under my head, and create a warm tornado where I could read and shut out the world
Both reading spots sound amazing! Thank you Dev. CLAYMATES will be up for grabs at the end of this challenge for those you who stay tuned to reading all summer long! Week four reading list is below.
Dev Petty is the author CLAYMATES, I DON'T WANT TO BE A FROG, and other stories. Dev used to be an artist in film effects and she loves writing picture books because they're sort of like tiny, paper movies. She is a Berkeley native, devout Californian, and quality sandwich maker. Dev is represented by Jen Rofé of ABLA. www.devpetty.com
