My granddaughter, Brett, visited the national library of Egypt last week. When she went in the youth department, she looked to see if they had any of my books, and found a copy of Nightmare Mountain.
A distant cousin let me know she buys my books in Paris, where she lives.
A chapter from Five Pages a Day: A Writer’s Journey is being included in Houghton Mifflin’s new reading textbook for Grade 5, in both the Spanish edition and the English edition that’s used in the United Kingdom and British Commonwealth. It’s the chapter about my Dog Newspaper.
The only countries besides my own that I’ve visited are Canada and Mexico, so it is exciting to think that my books are being read on other continents.
