It’s a BOOK BIRTHDAY: A COOKED UP FAIRY TALE

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR COOKED UP FAIRY TALE, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU.

One of the first kidliters I met when I ventured out on this writing journey in 2011 was Penny Parker Klostermann. She was an active participant in all of the writing challenges and contests that Susanna Leonard Hill hosted. Reading her entries, I knew she’d be a successfully published author before long.

Her debut picture book, THERE WAS AN OLD DRAGON WHO SWALLOWED A KNIGHT, is a joy to read. And TODAY, her second picture book launches!

To celebrate this auspicious occasion, Penny and I put our heads together. (and you know how much trouble two picture book writers can get into when they do that) In addition to a giveaway of a signed copy of A COOKED UP FAIRY TALE and a yummy recipe, we’ve cooked up a super fun interview. So hold on to your hats!

OH MY GOSH! HOW MUCH FUN WAS THIS?

Huge thanks to Penny for arranging space for our interview on the front page of THE ROYAL REPORTER.

Penny Parker Klostermann is the author of There Was an Old Dragon Who Swallowed a Knight and the upcoming, A Cooked-Up Fairy Tale which is releasing today! She loves all kinds of books, but especially loves very silly picture books that make her laugh. Penny has been known to hug her favorite picture books and seriously hopes that someday her books will gain huggable status too. 

Penny grew up in Colorado and now lives in Abilene, Texas-the Storybook Capital of Texas!

Please don’t forget to leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway (U.S. addresses only, please). And remember, one of the greatest gifts you can give to your favorite author is to leave a review on Amazon and /or Goodreads.

More picture book awesomeness this coming weekend when we welcome author Nancy Churnin and illustrator Danny Popovici and another soon-to-be-released picture book, Manjhi Moves a Mountain.

  1. Adorable interview you two! And congratulations Penny! I just put it on reserve at my library. They don’t have it in yet but thanks to blog posts like these I often get to be the first to check new books out. Love that new picture book smell. 🙂

  2. Vivian and Penny, you have given me my first laugh of the morning. Just finished reading your hilarious, witty, and clever interview. Cloud cake recipe sounds easy and fun. Most of the all – because Penny is my critique buddy and I saw the book in all its incarnations – I know for sure that the story is a delightful, delectable, and delicious read brought to life with astonishing art. Kudos to Penny and illustrator Ben Mantle!
