About the Author

Author Rosemary Rivera started writing when she was 7 years old, though some teachers didn't believe her, so they made her "write something" while they sat and watched. It was actually fun! She tried drawing too, but that's when she got in trouble. This story is based on that adventure. It didn't end the same way, though. She's still waiting for her talk show appearance. In the meantime she writes all sorts of stuff: articles, op-eds and even animated show ideas with her partner in crime, Mario. Her favorite pastime; hanging out with her Superboy, Tyler. Illustrator Mario Menjivar has been drawing since he was a little dude in a seaside town in Honduras, where he was known as the Boy Who Wouldn't Talk. Then he started talking and became the Boy With A Thousand Questions. He wound up in New York where he studied to be an artist, then got whisked away to Disney's world as an animator. He worked on all kinds of fun hand-drawn films, including Lion King, Hercules and Tarzan. He designs, illustrates, teaches at the School of Visual Arts and plays with his own little dude in NY with his wife, who lets him do all the drawing. For all their collaborations, this is Rosemary and Mario's first picture book together.

Format: Kindle Edition
What appealed to me repeatedly about this book is that the spritely narrator is unswervingly optimistic throughout. She has confidence in her abilities, and she won't let fellow students, teachers, or anyone bring her down. The adults in the story are completely clueless about the way kids think. This helps to remind us "real life" grown-ups that we don't know it all, and sometimes we need to embrace a more childlike outlook on life. The book is illustrated expertly; the drawings leap to life, and the emotions displayed speak volumes. I recommend this book for kids and adults alike, and especially to parents who enjoy reading to their kids.

I have to say I was drawn to this book initially by the fun cover. The illustrations throughout the book are whimsical and have a wonderful sense of humor all on their own. Then I read the book with my 4 year old niece... and it got even better! We can definitely find a little bit of Myra, the main character, in all of us... she certainly reminds you of the beauty of being young and having a wild imagination! I found this children's book to be unique, modern and wacky all at the same time. The storytelling is fun and entertaining. Definitely recommend for anyone young or young at heart!

A must read for any children's collection of books. Rosie and Mario captured innocence in a bottle with a terrific message for all aspiring creative young minds. Bravo to them both! Well worth the investment for the impression it will leave on any child and the life ahead of them. Anyone with a spark of talent with relate with Myra, the main character!

I totally enjoyed this book, the black and white artwork gave it a very nice look. As serious as a childs years in school are, it's a very believeable story on how a teacher can make a mistake and miss read someone's interpatation of their artwork. I would recomend this book to anyone looking for a warm, heartfelt story about the little girl who could.

A pleasant and fun read! The artwork is really well done with character designs that are unique, and full of personality. The main character is endearing and it's fun to follow her adventure. The story is both cute and clever and delivers a great message about creativity and innocence. I highly recommend this book.
