Author: A True Story

Amazon.com Rating:

So begins the story of Helen Lester, author of Tacky the Penguin and many other popular books for children. By sharing her struggles as a child and later as a successful author, she demonstrates that hurdles are part of the process. She even gives writing tips, such as keeping a "fizzle box." Helen Lester uses her unique ability to laugh at her mistakes to create both a guide for young writers and an amusing personal story of the disappointments and triumphs of a writer's life.

"A picture-book autobiography that looks at the genesis of a writer from childhood to first publication, with all of the setbacks along the way." -- School Library Journal
