My Top 8 Favorite (Contemporary) Children's Writers

Over the next couple of...however long it takes me to do this...I'll blog about one of my top 8 (top 10 lists are too conformist for me) favorite contemporary children's writers and what it is about them that I adore.

Some of them will come as no surprise, I'm sure. So here they are, in alphabetical order (because I can't decide my TOP top from my middle and bottom top; not because I'm conforming):

Alison Croggon

Kate DiCamillo

Shannon Hale

Lois Lowry

Donna Jo Napoli

Katherine Paterson

JK Rowling

Megan Whalen Turner

First up...Katherine Paterson. Coming next week.


  1. Can't wait to read about them. My favorite in the list is Lois Lowry!
