"Scholastic's Winter's Tail Makes Waves" Feature in Publisher's Weekly

Thursday, December 17 2009

"The stories we tell in our books mostly involve tragedy or trauma out of which hope springs forth," (Craig Hatkoff) says.  "I always look for what I call teachable, magic moments, and a story we're thinking of writing has to pass  what my daughters and I call the goosebumps test.  Winter's story has all of this. And it also has a real heart-thumping aspect, since it wasn't clear in the beginning if she would survive."
