Check Out This New Book!

New Anthology WHO DONE IT? 
by Jon Scieszka Pulls Together
Talents of 80 Authors!

A star-studded anthology with a devilish hook, whose proceeds benefit 826nyc: the fabulous literacy non-profit founded by Dave Eggers.

Can you imagine the most cantankerous book editor alive? Mr. Burns meets Stalin, but worse (appearance and odor-wise) than a gluttonous farm pig? A man who makes no secret of his love of cheese or his disdain of unworthy authors? That man is Herman Mildew.

The anthology opens with an invitation to a party, care of this insufferable monster, where over eighty of the most talented, bestselling, and recognizable names in children's and YA fiction learn that they are suspects in his murder. All must provide alibis in brief first-person entries. The problem is that all of them are liars; all of them are fabulists; and all have something to hide.

NCBLA Executive Director Mary Brigid Barrett says, "Go buy this book for your kids. Every kid on the planet needs this book. And the extra bonus is that proceeds from WHO DONE IT? benefit 826nyc, the literacy non-profit founded by Dave Eggers!"
