Fifth-grader Peter Hatcher's mother is pregnant, his four-year-old brother, Fudge, is a constant embarrassment to his family and his parents want to move to New Jersey for a year. Could life get any worse?
I work in youth services, and think books are pretty great! I have a soft spot for beautiful picture books, novels in verse and good science fiction. When I'm not reading children's books, you can find me drinking coffee, reading Scandinavian interior blogs and petting the neighborhood cats.
