Mo Willems (Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!)



Lois Lowry (The Giver)

Katherine Paterson (The Great Gilly Hopkins)


E. B. White (Charlotte's Web and many books of essays for adults)

Cynthia Rylant (The Relatives Came; The Wonderful Happens)

Who would you choose?
What about children's authors?
Any suggestions for my party?


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

  3. What a fantastic group! I love the blend of classic and contemporary authors. I'd add Judy Blume and J.K. Rowling.

  4. Roald Dahl would be a fun and quirky guest, wouldn't he? Mark Twain, also.

  5. Good choices all ... and I suspect it would be a fun, noisy and completely enjoyable holiday!

    Thanks for visiting my blog. :-)

  7. Wow, can you imagine the conversations. What a great list of authors. And it is funny how many have dogs, or pigeons, with them.

  8. I agree, love all the photos with the dogs!
    But to be honest, I'd invite Julia Child! (and hope she would do the cooking) Bon Appetit!

  14. Great list! Mark Twain would definitely be a good choice. I forgot to add him to my list, though: http://palmtreesbarefeet.wordpress.com/2011/11/22/top-ten-tuesday-authors-i-want-at-my-thanksgiving-dinner/

  15. Those are great choices, but I'd be so intimidated at that dinner...

    Definitely Mo Willems though. In fact, I'd have it at his house with the chalkboard walls in the dining room. I'll have to think about my other guests though...

  16. I like the idea of having chalkboard walls in my dining room. I wonder what my husband would think....

  17. Great list and would love to meet those too.

  18. I definitely agree with you on Steig, Lowry, and Rylant. I would probably invite Melanie Rae Thon, Junot Diaz, Toni Morrison, and a few more.

  24. C. S. Lewis made my list too! Other children's author's I'd choose: Shel Silverstein, Maud Hart Lovelace (Betsy & Tacy series), Elizabeth Enright, John Ryan (Captain Pugwash books--discovered those with my son), and Herge (Georges Remi--author of the Tin Tin books).

    Here's the guest list I posted: http://myreadersblock.blogspot.com/2011/11/top-ten-g-guests-for-thanksgiving.html

  25. What a party that would be. Although I think some of those boys might get a bit rowdy, even before they'd had a shandy or two!

  26. Give me F Scott Fitzgerald and Murakami Haruki and that's a Thanksgiving I'd attend any day! haha
