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's, and for young readers who want to know more about this great author.
