More About the Author
My most recent series for Viking Children's Books are THE EMMA BOOKS: Only Emma, Super Emma, Excellent Emma, and three others, for kids 7 - 10, and THE ELLRAY JAKES BOOKS: EllRay Jakes is Not a Chicken!, EllRay Jakes is Magic!, my most recent book, EllRay Jakes the Recess King!, and five others-with the last one, EllRay Jakes Stands Tall! coming out soon. These are from Viking too, and are also for kids ages 7 - 10.
EllRay's younger sister Alfie has her own series coming, too, between 2016 - 2018. This series takes place three years after the last EllRay book, making Alfie Jakes seven years old when the first book begins - and her big brother EllRay eleven years old. And tall!
An interesting thing about these most recent series - THE EMMA BOOKS and THE ELLRAY JAKES BOOKS - is that all fifteen of them feature the same kids in the same third grade class! Writing the books was like dong a giant puzzle, in a way. But the stories are told from either Emma's or EllRay's point of view, of course.
While I am not able to do school visits at this time, I am always available through my new website - www.sallywarnerbooks.com - and will be happy to answer your questions and read what you have to say. I love my mail! Thanks again for visiting my page, and keep reading.

The story itself is okay, although I found the line drawings to be a little creepy (not nearly as cute as the cover drawing). However, if you're looking for positive only child role models, Emma is not the best choice.
It's about Emma, who moved to a different part of Oak Glen in a condominium, which is hard for her. But luckily, Cynthia quickly befriends her. They plan for a sleepover...but then, Emma's mother's friends have to go take care of the woman's mother, and so her four-year-old son needs to stay with Emma and sleep in Emma's bed!

Reluctant reader, but the book was about a girl with the same name, she seemed interested when she received it for a gift.Published 18 days ago by Marg
I liked that Emma had feelings for Anthony at the end but what I didn't like was the Ending. Cuz I was hoping that Anthony would come back and run into Emma's arms. Read morePublished 14 months ago by amazing Lexi
