One Terrific School Visit
The 5th grade students in Mrs. Downer's class at La Crescenta's Fremont Elementary were a delight to visit. Each student gave their own interpretation of THE AVIARY's silhouette cover illustration (see above) and came prepared with a thoughtful question. I had a wonderful time and hope they all did too!
I write for girls. My books include AGNES PARKER...GIRL IN PROGRESS, AGNES PARKER...HAPPY CAMPER, AGNES PARKER...KEEPING COOL IN MIDDLE SCHOOL, OPHIE OUT OF OZ and BAD TICKETS.
I'm excited about the latest book for Knopf: THE AVIARY. It's a historical novel with elements of fantasy. (Ghosts! Enchanted birds!) It was very fun to write...
