Author Notes

Larry Dane Brimner was born in St. Petersburg, Florida, and spent his early childhood exploring Alaska's Kodiak Island. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in British Literature from San Diego State University, where he graduated cum laude, and later received advanced degrees in writing and curriculum development. During his twenty-year teaching career, he began to write for publication.

Brimner made his debut in children's books with the publication of BMX Freestyle in 1987. It was named an International Reading Association Children's Choice book for 1988. This title was followed by Country Bear's Good Neighbor, which the American Booksellers Association named their "Pick of the List." Brimner wrote A Migrant Family, which was named a Notable Trade Book in the Field of Social Studies (NCSS/CBC); Max and Felix , a nominee for the Kentucky Bluegrass Award; Voices From the Camps, cited as a Best Book for the Teen Age by New York Public Library; Snowboarding, an IRA Children's Choice for 1998; and the Official M&M's® Book of the Millennium, an IRA Children's Choice for 2000.

Brimner is the author of more than 110 books for young people. He also speaks to school children about the writing process or to teachers at conferences. In 2014 his title, Strike: The Farm Workers Fight for Their Rights, made the Civil Rights Hot Title's List.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-Satisfactory additions to the series, these titles retain the small size that's so easy for beginning readers to manipulate, the limited rhyming vocabulary arranged in short simple sentences, and word lists on the final page. Cowboy Up! denotes a cowboy's day at the rodeo and has illustrations on every page, some of which are cleverly enclosed in lariats. Chairs has simple cartoon illustrations and introduces some basic concepts about the shape and sizes of chairs and where they might be found. In Messy Bessey's Holidays, the child bakes cookies for her friends for Chanukah, Christmas, and Kwanzaa. A recipe for decorated sugar cookies appears just before the word list at the end. This title is more complicated with twice as many vocabulary words and longer, more varied sentence length, and the rhymes are sometimes uneven.-Christina Dorr, Whitehall City Schools, OH (c) Copyright 2010.
