Alas, my poor blog has been languishing lately. Let’s pick up the pace again this morning with some brand new children’s author trivia.
1. I bet you can get this one: Which beloved children’s author passed away this month at the age of 92?
2. What prolific children’s author was recently surprised when a standardized test company used an excerpt from one of his novels involving a race between a rabbit and an eggplant?
Why was he surprised? Because the test asked the students to explain the meaning of the passage and this author is all about stories that don’t make sense. In fact, he is included in a list of “The 10 Weirdest Children’s Authors of All Time.” Do you know who he may be?
Be sure to leave a comment if you have an idea.
Edit: The answers are now posted.

Maurice Sendak died this month, and Daniel Pinkwater wrote the book about the race.
Dang, Heather beat me to it (I’m lying… I never would have gotten Daniel Pinkwater!). What fun info!
I am not giving the answers away until next Thursday, in case anyone else wants to play. 🙂
