More About Paula Danziger & Tony Ross

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Born in Washington, D.C., and raised in New York, Paula Danziger knew since second grade that she wanted to be a writer. Beginning her career as a teacher, Danziger taught at the junior high, high school, college levels. She received her Masters Degree in reading and during that time she wrote her first bestselling novel, The Cat Ate My Gymsuit. She returned to teaching, but the success of her book encouraged her to become a full-time writer. It was non-stop for Danziger since then. Among her titles are: the enormously popular Amber Brown books as well as Remember Me To Harold Square, The Divorce Express, and Can You Sue Your Parents For Malpractice?

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.
Tony Ross lives in London, England.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Two stars, with reservations  Sep 14, 2007
Published in 2005, this Amber Brown story follows the protagonist, Amber, through an eventful Halloween day.

Amber and her brother Justin are getting ready for school, excitedly packing their pumpkins which the kids decorated as book characters. So far, so good. Then on the very next page is a color illustration of her parents arguing and the whole page of text is about her parents not getting along and how Amber hopes they make up soon -- if not it will be "a sad Halloween".

The remaining events in the day are each colored with Amber's comments, such as, "She (mom) doesn't kiss my dad", "what if my parents get a divorce", etc. It's only 3/4 of the way through the book that her parents make up.

Amber's teacher, Ms. Light, is a light in the story, a breath of fresh air. The description of the class and the Halloween activities that day are fun, although peppered with Amber's negativity, "This is supposed to be fun, but it's really math". Her sense of humor is mostly negative throughout the book.

I don't really mind gross-out humor, but some parents do, so I thought I'd mention what's in this book -- a booger joke, comments on dirty diapers, pimples drawn on pumpkins and musings on what a pumpkin would look like with a pimple squeezed, calling someone a pumpkin pimple.

The reservations I have are mainly about the expression of Amber's parents failing marriage and Amber's worry. If a child has that situation at home the book might actually be a comfort to them; BUT for readers with stable home environments it may cause unneeded fear and worry. No need to plant seeds of disaster in little minds just before bedtime in my opinion. Our two 8 years olds' response was one of confusion (as to why something like that was in one of their books).

Thankfully we were able to check out this book from the library instead of buying.
