Magicianselephant_130 If you loved Kate DiCamillo's books: Because of Winn-Dixie, The Tale of Despereaux, and The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, then you won't want to miss her newest book The Magician's Elephant.

Scholastic Kid Reporter, Chloe A., got the inside scoop for this article. "As a young girl, DiCamillo wanted to be a veterinarian, but she soon
realized she didn't have what it takes to work with sick animals all
day. She never dreamed then that she would become an award-winning
author whose books would be made into movies. She thought she would be
lucky just to get one book published." Read the rest of Chloe's article to find out what Kate DiCamillo says about her new book, where she gets her ideas, and what advice she has for kids who want to write.

And for more information about DiCamillo's new book including videos and a sample excerpt, check out the official website for The Magician's Elephant. You can also register there for a live webcast with the author on October 25. I know I can't wait!
