About the Author

Virginia Hamilton (1934 2002) was the author of over forty books for children, young adults, and their older allies. Throughout a career that spanned four decades, Hamilton earned numerous accolades for her work, including nearly every major award available to writers of youth literature. In 1974, "M.C. Higgins, the Great" earned Hamilton the National Book Award, the Newbery Medal (which she was the first African-American author to receive), and the "Boston Globe Horn ""Book" Award, three of the field s most prestigious awards. She received the Hans Christian Andersen Award, the highest international recognition bestowed on a writer of books for young readers, in 1992, and in 1995 became the first children s book author to receive a MacArthur Fellowship, or Genius Award. She was also the recipient of the Coretta Scott King Award.

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
This is the complete review as it appears <a href="http://ianwoodnovellum.blogspot.com/2014/12/zeely-by-virginia-hamilton.html">at my blog dedicated to reading, writing (no 'rithmatic!), movies, & TV</a>. Blog reviews often contain links which are not reproduced here, nor will updates or modifications to the blog review be replicated here. Graphic and children's reviews on the blog typically feature two or three images from the book's interior, which are not reproduced here.

Note that I don't really do stars. To me a book is either worth reading or it isn't. I can't rate it three-fifths worth reading! The only reason I've relented and started putting stars up there is to credit the good ones, which were being unfairly uncredited. So, all you'll ever see from me is a five-star or a one-star (since no stars isn't a rating, unfortunately).

I rated this book WORTHY!

WARNING! MAY CONTAIN UNHIDDEN SPOILERS! PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK!

Zeely, believe it or not. is a story about Elizabeth Perry and her brother John who go to the country to spend the summer with their uncle, Ross. On the train there, they change their names to Geeder (soft 'G') and Toeboy for the summer for reasons unexplained.

This is a short novel, only a hundred pages or so, and an easy read - not just because of the comfortable writing and leisurely pace of the novel, but also because the story is very entertaining. But don't make the mistake of thinking it's too leisurely. The story moves.

Geeder and Toeboy decide to "camp out" at night, and they sleep in a field near the house which has a view of the road through the bushes.

A Kid's Review on February 16, 2010
Format: Paperback
I would not recommend this book Zeely for many reasons. One reason is because the ending left you in wonder. What ever happened to the Mom and Dad? Also what happen to the Aunt? Another reason was because some parts I didnt get. The whole begining I didnt really follow to well. The last reason is because the story didnt really make sense. If I were you I wouldnt read this book.

I read this when I was in elementary school and it kept my attention. This was one of the first books I could relate to and visualize the story while reading it. I probably checked this book out four times in our library. I wanted this for my kids to read one day.
