Award-winning author of 28 books, including NOTHING EVER HAPPENS ON 90TH STREET, used by many teachers to model writing, THE BOY WHO LOVED WORDS, winner of the 2006 Parents' Choice Award, and MAMA, I'LL GIVE YOU THE WORLD, winner of Oppenheim Platinum Award. I speak to children as fellow writers and share my passion for the power and pleasure of words and story. I urge children to turn their ideas, events and feelings into stories by observing carefully, using their imagination, and asking, what if? I show my messy notebooks and drafts to emphasize the value and pleasure of rewriting. With fun exercises and writing tips based on my many books, I aim to convince children that writing--whether fiction or nonfiction--is both rewarding and easy.

Since the final broadcast, the Honeymooners has gone out to countless syndication showings which have resulted in New Years Eve marathon telecasts and festivals. The highlight of this program is a 16mm showing of a rare Honeymooners episode title Hello Mom (which aired December 3, 1951).
