It’s increasingly clear that talented authors abound in West Seattle. We’ve found out about another one up for a national award: “Myths Busted!” is the first book by Admiral resident Emily Krieger, published by National Geographic Kids and already voted one of the top five favorite 5th/6th-grade books in America. Emily explains: “The winner is still being determined by votes, and anyone — kids and adults — can vote in as little as 30 seconds (here). No registration required! … If any of your readers would like to vote local, they have through May 12th. And while I appreciate any and all support for Myths Busted!, if anybody has a special fondness for the other nominees, I wouldn’t begrudge them. Being involved in kids’ reading and encouraging them to talk about books is the most important part.”
P.S. She says the second book in the “Myths Busted!” series will be out May 13th, along with a short-story collection called “Funny Fill-In: My Dinosaur Adventure,” and in addition to all that, she’s just finished writing the third and final “Myths Busted!” book.
