When Was the Last Time You Told a Flap Writer You Loved Them?
Remember remember the 15th of .... January (note to self: doesn't rhyme).
The Flappies are due in to the Longstockings by 1/15/07, people. Flap copy on children's books gets little to no attention. I never look at flaps when I'm writing a review for fear of inadvertently copying some poor clever schlub's encapsulation of events (though I often go back after I've read the review to think, "ARGH! That was better!"). And do these schlub's get flap copy credit? They do not. It's a secret science that culls no attention and receives no praise. So grab some flaps, find your favs, and head on over to The Longstockings blog to give shout-outs where shout-outs are due to the flaps that won your heart in 2006.
