The Julie Fogliano Edition
Julie Fogliano is a lyrical legend. I adore her "kid-true" style of writing. It transports me back to childhood in ways that few can. In fact, I wrote Julie an email to tell her how she is one of my Kidlit idols but never sent it. (Why not? Imposter syndrome/shyness/anxiety...) So, this is my way to boldly proclaim to Julie and all of you just how happy I am that she writes. I believe her timeless voice will continue to be loved for generations. Thank you, Julie, for sharing your special gift with the world!
