Library Journal Review

Gr 2-5-Unique glimpses into the working days and lives of three children's book creators. Each writer describes his childhood, the influences on his writing career, and his work. Adler likes to base his characters on people he knows and also brings such historical figures as Lou Gehrig and Anne Frank to life in biographies. Bruchac draws on his Native American heritage to tell stories about the natural world and to write poetry. Locker starts by painting pictures inspired by the Catskill Mountains near his home and then writes a story to accompany the illustrations. Each simply written entry is accessible to young readers. The books are also filled with wonderful insights into the qualities that make a good writer. Engaging black-and-white and full-color photographs that have a "you-are-there" immediacy are thoughtfully placed throughout the books.-Kristen Oravec, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Strongsville, OH (c) Copyright 2010.
