Is It “Wiz-ner” or “Wise-ner”?
Or “Wheeze-ner”? As a person who often has to explain how to pronounce my name (hard J? soft J?), I can see how the following website could be a lifesaver for those struggling to name that author. Thanks to the outstanding children’s lit blog The Longstockings, I now know how to pronounce just about every author name I’ve been butchering all these years. Teachingbooks.net has a very helpful and extensive audio clip collection of authors pronouncing their names.
