Synopsis

Synopsis

Julia Song and her friend Patrick want to team up to win a blue ribbon at the state fair, but they can't agree on the perfect project. Then
Julia's mother suggests they raise silkworms as she did years ago in Korea. The optimistic twosome quickly realizes that raising silkworms is a lot tougher than they thought. And Julia never suspected that she'd be discussing the fate of her and Patrick's project with Ms. Park, the author of this book!

About Linda Sue Park

Linda Sue Park - Project Mulberry

“Everything inspires me! The things I see and do every day; people I meet; conversations, movies, television, books. . . . One of the best things about writing is that it makes you a better observer—you pay attention to people and things because you never know what might inspire a story!”—Linda Sue Park

Linda Sue Park won the 2002 John Newbery Medal for A Single Shard, her third book for young readers.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Linda Sue Park was born and raised in Illinois. The daughter of Korean immigrants, she has been writing poems and stories since she was 4 years old, and her favorite thing to do as a child was read.

Park was first published when she was 9 years old. She was paid one whole dollar for a haiku that ran in a children’s magazine. Her father still has the one-dollar check in a frame above his desk.

During elementary school and high school, Park had several more poems published in magazines for children and young people. She studied English at Stanford University and then she took a job as a public-relations writer for a major oil company. This was not exactly the kind of writing she wanted to do, but it did teach her to present her work professionally and that an interested writer can make any subject fascinating.

Somewhere between living in Ireland, England, and the United States; teaching English as a Second Language and working as a food journalist; and starting a family, Park finally realized that what she really wanted to do was to write books for children.

Park lives in upstate New York with her husband, their two children, a dog, a hamster, and eight tadpoles. Besides reading and writing, Linda Sue Park likes to cook, travel, watch movies, and do the New York Times crossword puzzles.
