Author Wanda Brunstetter loves Betty MacDonald's Nancy and Plum

C.J.: Were books a big part of your life growing up? If so, what books would you say influenced you most as a child?

WANDA: Yes, books were a huge part of my growing up years. I read every chance I got, and imagined that I was the characters in the stories. Two of my favorite books were Nancy and Plum by Betty MacDonald and The Pennywinks by Electa Clark. I not only found these books to be enjoyable but they gave me the desire to someday write books of my own.

What are a few of your favorite books?

My favorite book to read as a child was Nancy and Plum by Betty MacDonald. I read that book over and over again. I still have a copy of it in my home library.

I can understand Wanda Brunstetter very well. I'm reading Nancy and Plum at the current time and I enjoy it as much as ever. Every time I read this wonderful book I remember Betty MacDonald's very witty sister Alison Bard interviewed by Wolfgang Hampel. Alison Bard tells the most delightful stories about Nancy and Plum in this interview. Alison hates Mrs. Monday. And so do I!!! What about you?
