Horton Halfpott: Author's Arena
Welcome back. Join me now in the Author's Arena to meet the writer and illustrator of Horton Halfpott, Tom Angleburger.
Angleburger has five books, two of which are written under Sam Riddleburger. Check out Burger and Burger for more information.
Angleburger is also the creator of The Strange Case of Origami Yoda, and Darth Paper Strikes Back: An Origami Yoda Book. You can find out more about these books at The Strange Case of Origami Yoda site. While you are over there, take some paper with you and see if you can make your own Yoda or Darth Paper characters. Looks like a lot of fun.
Inspiration for the book came from stories by Charles Dickens. Have you read any of Dicken's books? Maybe a trip to the local library is in order.
