Editorial Reviews


"Bottner’s buoyant pictures feature comical facial expressions, adding the right tone to this breezy portrait of an opposites-attract friendship." -- Publishers Weekly

"This book scores a hit with two well-defined characters: irrepressible, curious, impatient Posh and the more mature and methodical Pish." -- School Library Journal

More About the Author

Barbara Bottner began writing for children in the 1970's, when she broke her leg doing off-Broadway Theater and decided to consider a different career. Having gotten a degree in painting, she began to hang out in the children's book section of libraries and bookstores. She was amazed at the originality of the art and fell in love with picture books. Slightly fickle, she also wrote I Can Reads, eventually middle grade and YA novels. She stretched out into writing for television and film and also published essays and short stories in national magazines. She returned to writing books for children and Bootsie Barker Bites, illustrated by Peggy Rathmann, a classic, was translated into eight languages and animated for television. Barbara prevailed upon her MD husband, Gerald Kruglik, to co-write Wallace's Lists, illustrated by Olof Landstrom, which was also animated, (Weston Woods) is translated into Swedish and is forthcoming in French.
Barbara collaborated with Michael Emberley, resulting in Miss Brooks Loves Books (and I don't). Anyone who's ever struggled with falling in love with reading, or is the parent or teacher of a picky reader will rejoice in the way Miss Brooks handles a curmudgeon of a first grader. Miss Brooks Loves Books has appeared on the New York Times Bestseller List and is nominated for the prestigious Bill Martin Jr. Award. Barbara teaches writing and consults with writers all over the country; she was honored to receive the New School Distinguished Teaching Award in 1990.

Format: Hardcover
I loved reading this book to my son. It gave us lots to talk about and we kept coming back to it. Check out other books by this author. She has a unique style and her insights into a child's mind are right on.

A Kid's Review on March 23, 2006
Format: Paperback
I really liked this book because I like magic and really funny books. My favorite part was when Pish made the mer maid come and the mer maid said " What am I doing here?" It was a very fun book to read and you should read it too.
