The bandwagon gets heavier 

Add Philip Kerr to the ever growing list of crime writers crossing over to children's lit. He gets a seven-figure deal from Scholastic (both US and UK):

Kerr, who will write for kids as P.B. Kerr, tells of 12-year-old twins of a New York couple whose uncle is a genie and turns them into djinns, able to make people's wishes come true; first up, next fall, is The Akhnaten Adventure.

Coming soon: a cuddly tale of happiness and love for kids from Andrew Vachss.
