September Author: Ellen Potter

Ellen Potter is one of my favorite authors and the first author we ever interviewed for the Book Buddies Book Club!  Twice we've read and enjoyed Olivia Kidney (the first in that series) and I'm so excited for us to read her newest novel, The Humming Room.  In between Olivia Kidney and The Humming Room, Ms. Potter wrote a number of other excellent books for children.  Catch up on any that you may have missed today!

The Kneebone Boy
Otto, Lucia, and Max Hardscrabble, whose mother has been missing for many years, have unexpected and illuminating adventures in the village of Snoring-by-the-Sea after their father, who paints portraits of deposed monarchs, goes away on a business trip.

Picked on, overweight genius Owen tries to invent a television that can see the past to find out what happened the day his parents were killed.

Pish Posh
Eleven-year-old Clara Frankofile sits in her parents' elegant New York City restaurant, Pish Posh, and passes judgement on each customer as a Somebody or a Nobody, but her all-seeing eyes fail to observe the mysterious events occurring right under her nose.
