Today it’s our two year blogoversary here at Wrapped In Foil. Wow!
To celebrate, let’s have a new children’s author trivia question.
46. Our first author comes to the writing world as an executive editor at a major publishing house, who has still found time to write over 20 children’s books. One of her books won a Coretta Scott King Honor Award in 2001. She often works with her husband, who just happens to be a Caldecott-Award winning illustrator. Did I mention she also has two children and runs marathons?
Do you know who this amazing woman is?
47. Our second author today is also had many talents. He was a musician, playwright, and also children’s author. One of his books defied categorization, but that didn’t stop an insightful editor from publishing it. Another was the first children’s book to be listed on the New York Times Bestseller List. Johnny Cash made one of the songs he wrote famous (A Boy Named Sue.) Our family’s favorite of his books is a book of spoonerisms that was published after his death. Can you identify this gifted author?
Edit: The answer is now posted.

No clue on the first one, but is the second one Tom T. Hall? I’m resisting the urge to Google it! lol
