More About the Author

Marilyn Singer was born in the Bronx (New York City) on October 3, 1948 and lived most of her early life in N. Massapequa (Long Island), NY. She attended Queens College, City University of New York, and for her junior year, Reading University, England. She holds a B.A. in English from Queens and an M.A. in Communications from New York University.

In 1974, after teaching English in New York City high schools for several years, she began to write - initially film notes, catalogues, teacher's guides, and film strips. Then, one day, when she was sitting in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, she penned a story featuring talking insect characters she'd made up when she was eight. Encouraged by the responses she got, she wrote more stories, and in 1976, her first book, The Dog Who Insisted He Wasn't, was published by E.P.Dutton & Co.

Since then, Marilyn has published over eighty books for children and young adults. Her genres are many and varied, including realistic novels, fantasies, non-fiction, fairy tales, picture books, mysteries and poetry. She likes writing many different kinds of books because it's challenging and it keeps her from getting bored.

Marilyn currently lives in Brooklyn, NY, with her husband Steve; their standard poodle Oggi, seen in the home page photo; a cat named August ; two collared doves named Jubilee and Holiday; and a starling that says, "Hi. How are you? Sweet Birdie. Okay!" Her interests include ballroom/Latin dancing, dog training, reading, hiking, bird-watching, gardening, playing computer adventure games, and going to the movies and the theatre. She's also a major Star Trek fan.

Marilyn is the former host of the AOL Children's Writers Chat and currently co-hosts the Poetry Blast at various conferences. Visit her web site: www.marilynsinger.net.

When I first received this book as a Valentine day gift for my middle daughter I wasn't sure how it would be received. It is a tiny little book and I figured she would feel cheated since her sisters both got bigger books. However, this is a cute little thing. The two line poems on each page were just right for my first grade daughter. She read this book more than any other I have ever purchased her. Each poem has a bit of humor in it as well. For example, on the page featuring two horses, they are glad they have a stable relationship. My daughter read this one on the bus to her friends. Her teacher shared it with the class. Later that night it was taken along on a visit to my parents house. I am worried this one could get easily misplaced in my school library because of it's size, but I still plan on having a copy so I can share it with my students.

This is a tiny little book that costs $8! It is cute but not $8 cute. These are two line rhyming poems with cute pictures to accompany the poem. Nothing special.
