Siobhán Parkinson

I was very lucky to get to know Siobhán Parkinson at my first CLNE at Lake George many years ago. Hearing of my work with Cinderella she later sent me Sisters…No Way, a book my students enjoy tremendously every year.  And one of my favorite realistic middle-grade books of recent times is her beautifully written middle-grade novel Something Invisible about loss and self-awareness.  And now I have heard from Judith Ridge that she is the new Irish Laureate for Children’s Literature.  Way to go, Siobhán!
