It’s the fourth Thursday of the month, and that means it’s time for another edition of our blog series highlighting random online sightings of a few of our authors. Let’s go!
You must see this video re-enactment of Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams‘s Zeus and the Thunderbolt of Doom performed by some adorable young fans of the Heroes in Training series.

Clare Hodgson Meeker is this month’s featured guest at Janet Lee Carey’s Library Lions Roar blog. Head on over to read about Clare’s childhood library, recent author visits, and more.
On Goodreads, David Patneaude has his own Ask the Author page. Find out how he deals with writer’s block and what he most loves about being a writer. You could even submit your own question — he might just answer it!
Lisa L. Owens occasionally writes supplemental curriculum materials, and here’s “Exploring Friendship with Bridge to Terabithia,” a six-session Grades 4–6 lesson plan she developed for the International Literacy Association’s online database of teacher resources.
