Hi there! I'm Minutia. I write fanfiction, draw the occasional fanart, and burble on about fannish things. I also do other things, but not with this identity.

 

I know it’s okay to be fannish about YA books, and middle-grades books … picture books are cool, too, right?  Right.
Anyway, The Dunderheads by Paul Fleischman and David Roberts.  I can’t remember the last time I was so utterly charmed by a book.  The basic plot is that a mean teacher confiscates a kid’s birthday present for his mother, and he and his classmates team up to get it back.  The execution is … it’s like Charles Addams and Roald Dahl got together to write Ocean’s Eleven for preschoolers.
I kind of ship Einstein/Hollywood?  In a third-graders-in-love way, not a sexy way.
Apparently a sequel has recently come out, I should try to get my hands on that.
