School Library Journal - Anne Knickerbocker, formerly of Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX

"Adaptations of two of Hans Christian Andersen's well-loved stories. The plots stay true to the originals, thus assuring popularity. In order to keep the books on a beginning reading level, much of the imagery from the original versions has been dropped and the texts are made up of short, easy sentences. Children will enjoy reading these tales on their own and finding out about the beautiful mermaid who longs to become human and the princess who wakes up black and blue after sleeping on 20 mattresses atop a small pea. Average-quality watercolor illustrations accompany the texts. Suitable choices for libraries building up their easy-reader collections." - School Library Journal

Susan Blackaby

Susan Blackaby started writing in Mrs. Nichols' third grade class at Green Gables. She didn't think of becoming a writer until she had tried a few other things, including goat milking and weaving. Over the past 20 years, Susan has written textbooks, workbooks, and readers by the dozen for kids in elementary school. In 2002, her first trade book, Rembrandt's Hat, was named one of the top ten picture books of the year by the Washington Post. Susan lives in Portland, Oregon, with two people, two labs, and the nicest kitty in the world.
