Touched By the Fairies, That One

Lois Lowry has a piece on changing the original title of Gossamer on her blog. Though I can understand and appreciate the sentiment behind it, I think the publisher probably had the right idea when they told her that a book called "The Touched Boy" would give the wrong impression to the book buying crowd. Thanks to Blog From the Windowsill for the link.

Ooohhh, that IS an interesting link. Authors and publishers have to be extra careful when it comes to children's literature. Speaking of Gossamer, is it good? =) I am so excited about reading it. It sounds like a beautiful book and Lois Lowry does have an amazing track record. =) Gossamer isn't out yet here in the Philippines. =(

Yup. It's a good 'un. Just click on the word "Gossamer" in this posting and you can see my review of it. I'm not entirely certain if it's out here yet. Probably is. I have a hard time keeping track these days.
