The Horn Book Guide

“the short sentences in these thorough offerings are just right for beginning readers.” —The Horn Book Guide

Illustrator: Qi Z. Wang

Author: Marlene Targ Brill

Marlene is an award-winning author of almost 70 titles for readers preschool through adult. She began writing while teaching children with disabilities, producing materials to help her students learn. With time, the desire to write grew stronger. Soon she was writing for a variety of formats—magazines, internet, newspapers, scripts, books, and textbooks for readers of all ages. Yet, she never forgets where the dream of writing originated—through work with children. She is drawn back into classrooms to share the wonders of research and writing, and, of course, reading books.
