http://lcbrennan.blogspot.com/2012/09/leslie-bulion-and-universe-of-fair.html with Leslie Bulion, she discussed her humorous middle grade novel, The Universe of Fair. This is one of my all-time favorite books, with quirky characters involved in riotous situations which often tug at the heart.
The Universe of Fair also incorporates physics. Physics, as in science? Yup, that’s right. And the physics is woven into the story in a seamless and amazing way. Leslie has a master’s degree in science, so it makes sense that it often wends its way into her writing.
In fact, Leslie’s recent series pairs science with poetry. Hey There Stink Bug, At the Seafloor Café, Random Body Parts: Gross Anatomy Riddles in Verse, Leaf Litter Critters, Superlative Birds, and her latest title, Amphibian Acrobats are fun and fabulous. Superlative Birds was just named to NCTE Notable Poetry List and both it and Amphibian Acrobats received starred reviews from Kirkus and Booklist.
To quote Kirkus’ review of Superlative Birds: "With characteristic humor and carefully crafted language, poet Bulion offers readers amazing facts about birds of our world...”
When I talked with Leslie Bulion about her Author Roundup, she was just about to Zoom out to meet with students in Texas. So if you’d like to know more about Leslie, her books, or her workshops, visit https://www.lesliebulion.com/
