I found this copy of Thoreau’s Walden buried in the park.  I opened it and saw these roots growing between the pages. I don’t know whether to frame it or put it back in the ground.

Hi this is Gracie, and I heard your were writing the last books of Elsewhere. Are you really going to do that? And if you are, what do you think your going to write next?

You heard right — The Books of Elsewhere, Volume Five: Still Life, which was just released on Tuesday, is the final book of the series.  I’ve got a YA novel coming out in a year or so, and I’m embarking on a new fantasy/mystery series about a small boy, a large city, and a library that isn’t for books, and I’ve got several other ideas waiting in the back of my brain…so there should be many, many more books from me, as long as I am able to finish them.

Such hope.

Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.
