I had no idea what I was going to write for the J post, until I sat down to write this...
J is for
Maureen Johnson is actually not one of my favourite authors. I recently read 13 Little Blue Envelopes, and, contrary to quite a few people, I didn't particularly love it. The thing is, I didn't really have a problem with the author's way of writing, just the story. It didn't sound plausible (at all) and it put me off a little. BUT, I hear she has a new book coming out, called The Name of the Star, which is a re-telling of Jack the Ripper, and I really like the sound of it! I will definitely try to get my hands on it! :)
I know! Creeeeepy cover, eh? Anyway, I was given this book years and years ago and I remember that is was completely and utterly weird! I think it also features a lot of Poop Scooping (or something along that line). I have only read this book by Jennings (which he has written together with Morris Gleitzman), but from what I know he is a rather well known children's author, with many books to his name.
Well, I didn't do too badly there, did I? If you consider the fact that I had no idea what I was going to say today!
Back again on Monday for the next letter - K!
