Lillie Burney students are excited about having a favorite author visit the school April 13, 2011. Students love the following books written by this wonderful writer. He has written six books so far and these include four children's picture books. They are Grandma's BiscuitsJamaal's Lucky Day!Fun Day in Mrs. Walker's Class, and What Can I Be?

Not only is the writing terrific but the illustrators are outstanding too! Two of the illustrators of the books have Mississippi ties. Jamea Richmond majored in Fine Arts at Jackson State University and is the illustrator of Grandma's Biscuits. Chuck Galey illustrated the award winning book, Fun Day in Mrs. Walker's Class and lives in Jackson Mississippi.
