April Fools' Day with Peter Sieruta

It's almost a year since the awful and untimely death of Peter D. Sieruta, creator of I think of him often, and wonder when the book he was working on with coauthors Elizabeth Bird and Jules Danielson will be coming out. (It sounds like it's getting close.)

Today must have been one of his favorite days because almost every year, he wrote an April Fools' Day post. He caught me the first year because I didn't know his tradition, and his words are so deadpan that I was snookered.

Here are his posts:

2012 - A Sunday Brunch with All the News that's Fit to Print

2011 - Charlie Sheen Lands Children's Book Deal

2010 - Mockingjay Giveaway!

2009 - Graveyard Book to Be Stripped of Newbery?

2008 - A Disturbing Article from Today's Newspaper

All are in keeping with an article he wrote for Hornbook back in 1989.

Miss you, Peter. Happy April Fools' Day.
