You heard it here fourth!

Harry Potter might really be Lord Voldemort.

Da da DAAA!

Interesting post on the issue on Michele's Scholar's Blog. Others, such as Fuse 8 and Jen Robinson have also picked up on the fun. And for the benefit of certain bloggers, I'd just like to state that I am a fan of Harry Potter (debates on Narnia vs Harry notwithstanding). I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of any criticism of Giving Tree or Love You Forever proportions :)

Fuse 8 also has another post in her ongoing and fun series on the Hot Men of Children's Literature. Click HERE to find out who it is!

Kids Lit has two posts of interest today - one on the issue of teens writing for teens (more here) and one on VOYA's new list of best Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror books for 2005.

Also, forgot to post this yesterday - there has been a bit more news pick-up on the school library issue I posted on previously here. Hamilton Spectator story HERE and Toronto Star article HERE. Links courtesy of What's New in JK-12.

Finally, on the international front, news on literacy from the Philippines and how literacy rates and levels/availability of education are not necessarily linked.

Cheers!

Louise

Don't forget "Rainbow Fish"! You wouldn't want to be caught in a dark alley clutching that little number to your chest either.

Ahhh- but everybody forgets poor Rainbow Fish!

I have to admit to having never even read it....

May have to locate it someday soon.

Hey, thanks for the link, but can I just point out, my name is spelt "Michele" (the French way !) ?

Ooh - sorry about that Michele - will correct that promptly!
