Interstitial Moment (additional):

Lee Bennett Hopkins sent this on, to add to the discussion below of editors who write: “Add Beatrice Schenck de Regniers, an editor of Scholastic’s Lucky Book Club who wrote quite a bit under her name as was as Tamara Kitt. Also Ann McGovern, first editor of SEE SAW Book Club at Scholastic, who went on to create quite a body of work.”

Lee, thanks–how could I have forgotten them? Beatrice wrote one of my favorite retellings of Little Red Riding Hood in rhyme, with the the author addressing the wolf as “You old sinner, and did you eat Red Riding Hood for dinner?” And Ann wrote dozens and dozens of well-researched nonfiction books, including one on Deborah Sampson which was the first time I’d ever heard about the young woman who disguised herself as a man and became a soldier.
