I am so excited! As I was working on an author study for fourth grade today, I visit Kate DiCamillo’s website. Most of you know that she is my favorite author. To my delight, there was information about a new novel coming out in the Fall called The Magician’s Elephant. Kate even has the first chapter available to read on her site. There’s also a video of her reading the first chapter. Can this get any better? I really want to drop everything and read this chapter right now, but I have work to do. I’ll definitely read it tonight.
