Question 1. Do you recognize the illustration in our new logo? Who wrote the book it is featured in?
Bonus question: Why didn’t the author get all the royalties he or she should have for this book?
Question 2. Can you name the 2011-2013 Children’s Laureate from the UK? What is his or her name and favorite genre?
And finally, a question from the archives:
Our mystery author has to tell people how to pronounce his first name, and in fact, he has the pronunciation prominently displayed on his website. Born in Ireland, this young adult author started out as a teacher. When his book about his teaching experiences in Tunisia was published in 1998, he began writing another. Before long he was able to retire from teaching and took up writing books full time. His books are consistently on the New York Times bestseller lists. Can you pronounce today’s author’s name? What book series is he best known for?
