I love that title. The Edge of the Forest is a brand-new online children’s literature magazine, the brainchild of Kelly of Big A little a, a blog I often link to. Other contributors include Liz of A Chair, a Fireplace, and a Tea Cozy, Anne of Book Buds, Camille of Book Moot, Michele of Scholar’s Blog, and Susan of Chicken Spaghetti, who, as you may recall, will be hosting the next edition of the Carnival of Children’s Literature.*
Pour yourself a cuppa and settle in for a most enjoyable read. This debut issue gives us loads of book reviews, an interview with author Cynthia Leitich Smith, a selection of kids’ picks, and a feature on children’s-literature blogs. (Where, I must confess, I was surprised and delighted to discover a writeup of Bonny Glen!)
The Edge of the Forest is a great idea beautifully executed, and I look forward to enjoying it each month. Hats off to the creative team.
