About The Little Crooked Cottage

What’s The Little Crooked Cottage? Well, it’s home to two children’s book authors, Anika Denise and Jamie Michalak, one elementary school librarian, Melanie Roy, and a pig. It’s also a children’s book blog dedicated to celebrating authors, illustrators, and their creations!

Our pig in residence—Mr. Pig—is especially fond of entertaining. Most days you'll find him sipping tea or having a fireside chat with his guests. 

Each week, the Cottagers take turns picking their favorite books from our Little Crooked BookshelfAnd guests are often treated to our famous Literary Lunches — prepared by our good friend Nina, from Mamabelly Lunches with Love.

So stop by often! There's always some fun cooking up in The Little Crooked Cottage.

We'll put the kettle on for you!

~Anika, Jamie, Melanie... and Mr. Pig
