Kate DiCamillo Article

Here's an article about Kate DiCamillo, who's mostly known for her middle-grade novels like The Tale of Desperaux. Her latest offering, though, is a picture book called Louise, the Adventures of a Chicken.

Favorite quote:
Q What was the hardest book to write?

A All books are impossible. People think a picture book is easy, but it's the most difficult. Every word counts. You can't make mistakes.

With that title, I don't even need to know what the story. There has never been a dull book about a chicken. It's some kind of literary law.
