Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Danziger's irrepressible heroine feels torn between her future stepdad who is there when she needs him and her absentee father who now wants custody. Two bookmarks of Amber in distress come with each copy. Ages 7-10. Feb.
Children's Literature - Lisa Phillips
Amber Brown is a typical, likable fourth grader going through some difficult times. She has to deal with her divorced parents' constant bickering on the telephone, her mother's impending marriage, growth spurts, and even a bad haircut. Now her father, who's been living in Paris, calls to say he's coming back and wants shared custody of Amber. Poor Amber feels as if everything in her life is constantly changing. Fortunately, Amber is also able to find humor in her life with the help of her good friend Brandi's constant news bulletins and a very funny invasion of skunks in her school. Amber realizes that even though things may not always go as she'd like them to, and that she may not have a perfect life, she can still be a winner. Amber Brown's perky personality and honest outlook on life will win the hearts of all pre-teen kids. The book is simply written in first-person narrative, which makes her character easy to emphasize with.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4While a sequel is often weaker than the original, this book is stronger than its predecessors. After her parents' divorce and a variety of other changes, Amber Brown wishes something, if only her growing body, could stay the same. But nothing does. She has a new best friend, Brandi, with whom she becomes stranded on a school bus because their school has been invaded by a skunk family. Max, her mother's fianc, rescues them and takes them for a fun day at the mall. While Amber is still reluctant to see him as a future stepfather, she does reflect on how he is there when she needs him, unlike her father, who has been living in France. Things change again when he decides to return to New Jersey and seek joint custody of his daughter. Her parents begin fighting long distance, upsetting Amber until she "sees red." Ross's black-and-white cartoons help convey the character's feelings. Real emotion is mixed with comic relief, creating colorful characters in a lively story that will attract new fans and old ones alike.Jackie Hechtkopf, Talent House School, Fairfax, VA

Meet the Author

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.
