More About Paula Danziger & Tony Ross
Born in Washington, D.C., and raised in New York, Paula Danziger knew since second grade that she wanted to be a writer. Beginning her career as a teacher, Danziger taught at the junior high, high school, college levels. She received her Masters Degree in reading and during that time she wrote her first bestselling novel, The Cat Ate My Gymsuit. She returned to teaching, but the success of her book encouraged her to become a full-time writer. It was non-stop for Danziger since then. Among her titles are: the enormously popular Amber Brown books as well as Remember Me To Harold Square, The Divorce Express, and Can You Sue Your Parents For Malpractice?
Danziger received numerous honors, including: Parent's Choice Awards, International Reading Association - Children's Book Council Awards, a IRA-CBC Children's Choice Award and many nominations for state reading and library association awards.
Known as a flamboyantly funny and deeply honest writer and speaker, Paula Danziger knew how to relate to young readers at their level. She was vital, funny, and compassionate. She knew how kids felt, what made them laugh, what they wore, collected, read, and played with. From collecting novelty toys that would make any teacher cringe, to wearing jangly earrings, funky glasses and shoes covered with beads and sequins, Paula Danziger had a direct line into kids' hearts and funnybones. She will be missed always.
In Paula's memory, The Amber Brown Fund has been established to bring authors and illustrators to schools and libraries which otherwise could not afford them. Donations may be sent to The Amber Brown Fund/ SCBWI Museum of Children's Books, 8271 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90048. Tony Ross lives in London, England.
Paula Danziger lived in New York City, in the state of New York. Paula Danziger was born in 1944 and died in 2004.

Get ready to face some new challenges! Jan 6, 2008
In this beautifully illustrated novel, children will see that they're not the only ones to experience fear when confronting new situations.
The story is character driven, and will be sure to open up discussion about facing the fears encountered in growing up.
Our Daughter LOVES Amber!!! Aug 14, 2007
I just got this book from the library for my daughter (a 5 year old with a 1st-2nd grade reading level) and she has read and REread and RE-REread this book. She wants Amber's backpack and when I mentioned there might be a girl named Hannah in her Kindergarten class, she said she hoped it wasn't Hannah Burton. We said WHO??? and she replied, "The girl who's mean to Amber." Oh. I am on this site tonight to buy all the Amber books I can find!
Lovely Sep 7, 2005
My about to be second grader enjoyed this and found it reassuring. I don't think it will be re-read very frequently, but it was a worthwhile shared experience.
