Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Erika Clark
Kate and Carlos are best friends who play on the same volleyball team together. Even though both are equally talented, a broken arm keeps Carlos on the sidelines during practice the day before the big game. As Carlos and Coach Jones keep track of the fouls and points each team has, both notice how Kate continually fouls after spiking the ball. Since Kate is the tallest on the team, she is the best player to spike the ball. Consequently, she always touches the net, giving her team foul after foul. When Coach Jones misses the play that determines if Kate can start in the next game, Carlos has to make a difficult decision. "Carlos saw Kate's hand touch the net, but he didn't want her to get another foul. Carlos didn't want to lie either. ‘I have to be honest,' he thought. ‘Coach trusts me to tell the truth.'" Rules of the Net not only builds good character but also teaches readers how to make good decisions in social situations. The clear, colorful imagery and extended vocabulary helps students to apply trustworthiness when interacting in group or team activities. Reviewer: Erika Clark

Meet the Author

Native of Saint-Claude, I studied in Lyon. After a Bachelor of Science in Economies, I joined Emile Cohl, a graphic art school in Lyon, where I studied among other things painting, sculpture, comics, animation, computer graphics, and illustration. During the fourth and last year of my studies, I specialized in illustration for children and decided to do it as my job. I am therefore now a freelance painter-illustrator. I work with acrlic on different supports: paper, canvas, cardboards, etc.

I was brought up with legends and tales from which I get my inspiration.
