Frequently bought together
“Danziger [has] a pitch-perfect view of a child’s emotions.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“This heroine’s perky, first-person narrative allows readers to make her acquaintance immediately—and effortlessly.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Without a trace of condescension, Danziger gets the child's funny and vulnerable voice. The third-grader's friendship is beautifully drawn, especially the rituals about food, their shared enjoyment of the messy and the gross." —Booklist
About the Author
Danziger received numerous honors, including: Parent's Choice Awards, International Reading Association - Children's Book Council Awards, a IRA-CBC Children's Choice Award and many nominations for state reading and library association awards.
Known as a flamboyantly funny and deeply honest writer and speaker, Paula Danziger knew how to relate to young readers at their level. She was vital, funny, and compassionate. She knew how kids felt, what made them laugh, what they wore, collected, read, and played with. From collecting novelty toys that would make any teacher cringe, to wearing jangly earrings, funky glasses and shoes covered with beads and sequins, Paula Danziger had a direct line into kids' hearts and funnybones. She will be missed always.
In Paula's memory, The Amber Brown Fund has been established to bring authors and illustrators to schools and libraries which otherwise could not afford them. Donations may be sent to The Amber Brown Fund/ SCBWI Museum of Children’s Books, 8271 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90048.
