Newbery Award

There's no denying it --- Kate DiCamillo has one of the best "children's book author" resumes out there. She's written 17 children's books, has won the Newbery Award (more than once!) and was recently named the National Ambassador for Young People's LIterature. In this interview, Kate tells us where she was when she found out she won the 2014 Newbery Award for FLORA AND ULYSSES, what she wrote about as a child, a particularly amusing plane ride and her plans as National Ambassador.
