Publisher Comments:

Introduce Your Students to Their Favorite Authors with Insight into Both Their Personal and Professional Lives Young readers are always interested in the lives of the writers of their favorite books. This extremely exciting new Rosen Central series explores and celebrates the lives and work of favorite middle school and young adult authors. Chock-full of fascinating information (great for book reports and research projects!), including interviews with the authors, these books trace the path each writer has taken in developing his or her career. Each book focuses on the writer's most popular and critically acclaimed books and provides relevant insight into each writer's personal life and what it means for each author to be a writer. Extremely well-written and easy to read, these are an absolute must for any librarian. Books include selected reviews and lists of works and awards. This book provides fascinating insight into the life and writing of popular children's author Lois Lowry. Lowry, the winner of not one but two coveted Newbery Awards (one for Number the Stars and the second for The Giver), is an author known for her wide range. She is equally comfortable and successful writing funny, lighthearted books, such as the Anastasia Krupnik series; realistic and serious books about difficult situations, such as Find a Stranger, Say Goodbye and Number the Stars, and futuristic novels set in imaginary settings, such as The Giver. This title is a fascinating read both for fans of Lowry and for young readers who want to know more about this great author.
