She was about to meet her new class and she had just met the new teacher: Warren Woodford.However, Cath Murphy has yet to meet the Zing family...' (Publication summary)

Works about this Work

Undercover Susan Wyndham , 2007 single work column
— Appears in: The Sydney Morning Herald , 29-30 September 2007; (p. 30)
A column canvassing current literary news including the announcement of the publication of Jaclyn Moriarty's The Spell Book of Listen Taylor and the Secrets of the Family Zing. Wyndham says: 'Moriarty spent a year rewriting [I Have a Bed Made of Buttermilk Pancakes], which raises interesting questions about what distinguishes adult and teen fiction. "I didn't try to dumb it down," [Moriarty] says, "or change the vocabulary ... but I restructured it so the story opens with the girl and other things start to shift."'
