If only a subscription came with butterHorns
A sweet Christmas present from my now husband was a subscription to The Horn Book. I think the new issue will be one of my top five issues ever (and I have my mom's collection from the eighties on.) I might build this issue a little bed and tuck it in every night and give it bread and jam for breakfast every morning. Because much of this issue has to do with food. And it has Linda Sue Park, an article about Joan Aiken written by her daughter, and they picked, dare I say it, one of my top-5 favorite children's book characters to be on the cover (which is a much higher rating than #23 according to Betsy's poll.)
Plus the back page is an illustration by Melissa Sweet. How could a magazine be more wonderful? Only if it came with cookies. Excuse me, Mr. Sutton, but could you look into that?
