Me Want. Me Want For My Country.
Y'all know that once I like a children's author I latch onto their leg like a pit bull, chomp down hard, and won't let go. Just try to shake me off, Frances Hardinge! I'll never let you go!
Anywho, just learned from Kelly at Big A little a that Hardinge has a new book out called Verdigris Deep and it's been getting all kinds of cool reviews from the British Times here and here. When's it coming out in America? Your guess is as good as mine. The Amazon record is apparently just for the Australian version. Now if you don't mind, I'm going to go find Michael Stearns and poke him until Harper Collins consents to buy it for America.
