Hello everybody. Typically here at philipstead.com I celebrate the end of the week with Real Polaroid Friday. Today however I’m sharing a special link to my favorite children’s literature blog, Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast. Yesterday at the blog I shared an essay (with lots of pictures) that described the long, long process that led to the creation and eventual publication of my next book, A Home for Bird, due out in early June.

You can find the essay here:


If you are new to the Seven Impossible Things site, please take a while to browse the hundreds of author and illustrator features that are available in the archive. Seven Impossible Things is without a doubt the biggest and best resource out there on the internet for people interested in children’s lit.
