One of the best books I have read in a long time, thought others might be interested to know about the sequel
 
 
Hello Bertie,
 
I'm so glad you enjoyed The Book of Bright ideas, and thanks so much for writing to tell me so.  It's always such a blessing to hear from readers.   And you're absolutely right, I get mail all the time asking me to write a sequel to this book.  All that prompting has paid off--I'm working on the sequel now!  Of course, things move very slowly in the publishing world, so it won't be on the shelves until '11.  In the meantime, though, I hope you'll check out one of my other two books, and, my fourth book which will be released the very end of April.  The book is titled, How High the Moon, and takes place in Wisconsin in 1955.  Like Bright Ideas, it's told through the voice of a little girl, 10-year-old Isabella "Teaspoon" Marlene, a irrepressible child who sets out to make herself more "respectable" so her mother's former boyfriend, Teddy, won't abandon her the way her mother did when she ran off to become an actress.  It's funny, and touching, and I only hope readers enjoy reading Teaspoon half as much as I enjoyed writing her character.
 
Again, thank you for writing, Bertie! 
 
Happy reading,

Bertie,

You're the one who put me on this author, Sandra Kring. I just finished her latest, HOW HIGH THE MOON, and loved it so much I wanted to start over and read it again right now. But now I'm trying to get THE BOOK OF BRIGHT IDEAS.

Thank you for alerting us about this wonderful author.

Bertie is batting 1.000 with me - first it was the Sharon Sala series and now this Kring book. It's on its way to me from the library - it sounds wonderful.
