Condition: Used: Very Good
Comment: STATED FIRST PRINTING 2005. EX-LIBRARY, ALL EXTERNAL STICKERS HAVE BEEN REMOVED. There are still stamps and stickers on the front-facing endpaper and the title page and a stamp on the top edge of the page block. The cover has some scuffing and corner wear, an air bubble on the front in the bottom left quadrant, and one small chip near the top right corner on the back. The interior of the book is excellent -- the pages are bright, crisp, clean, unmarked, free of dog-ears, and firmly attached to the spine, which is uncreased. The binding is excellent and the book is perfectly square. Inside the Amazon packaging your book is plastic-wrapped with protected corners, and the label is on the plastic wrap, not on the book. Enjoy! :)

Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-6-These series titles are offered as "non-fictionalized stories that present the lives of contemporary, multicultural role models." The font size, ample white space, and vocabulary make them appropriate for transitional and reluctant readers. After introductory chapters about each author's popularity, information is presented in brief, chronological chapters. The material in Rowling is presented in an even manner but the text in Sendak is sometimes choppy and confusing. Additionally, there is some misinformation. (The first line of the book states that Where the Wild Things Are was Sendak's first picture book. It wasn't.) There are too many inaccuracies in this book to recommend purchase. Margin notes clue readers in to what can be found in the texts, but not all correspond to information found on the same page. Each book contains quotes, but the sources are not noted. Average-quality, black-and-white captioned photographs are scattered throughout each volume. Sendak has a list of his selected works, but neither title has a list for further reading. Libraries owning S. Ward's Meet J. K. Rowling (Rosen, 2001) will not need Gaines's title; stick with the collective biographies you already have to supply information on Sendak.

Format: Library Binding
I bought this book for my 3rd grade students to use in conjunction with our reading the biography of Helen Keller. I also wanted my students to get an understanding for the "author process." The students enjoyed learning about a favorite author, they were able to understand the language of the book, they could read it by themselves, and they could relate to how they feel about producing a finished piece of writing.

I really liked reading this book about the author of the Harry Potter books. It tells how she got the idea for Harry Potter. Great pix in the book, too.
