Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
"There's quite a lot to learn about pumpkins in this book, which even a math-phobe can love, plus there's kids working together and having their minds opened once their assumptions are trounced. Karas' stylized illustrations capture the fun of an engaging, hands-on classroom project."
More About the Author
"Margaret McNamara is a pen-name," says the author, whose real name is Brenda Bowen. "I write under the name Margaret McNamara because it was my maternal grandmother's name. The real Margaret grew up a very long time ago in County Clare in Ireland, and she was one of the few girls in her village who could read."
Margaret has just completed work on fifth and sixth Fairy Bell Sisters books (about Tinker Bell's Little Sisters); those two titles will release in summer and fall of 2014. Her most recent picture book is "The Apple Orchard Riddle," another book about the students in Mr. Tiffin's class, who first appeared in "How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin." Next up from Margaret is a new adventure set in Mr. Tiffin's class, "A Poem in Your Pocket," to be published on Poem in Your Pocket Day 2015. She is researching a picture book biography of Melville Dewey, inventor of the Dewey Decimal System.
