Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-5-- Kline has adapted 21 scenes from 4 of her novels to allow children to incorporate their own personalities into the characters of Herbie, Ray, Annabelle, and other friends and family. Each section features five or six vignettes, using a number of characters per scene. While the episodes are open ended, this type of oral reading could be a useful tool as a continuing, participatory activity and as an introduction to the craft of drama. Since the novels about Herbie Jones are enjoyed by many readers, this collection of oral, interactive readings is a natural and creative means of expanding literature into : the daily lives of children. --Jana R. Fine, Clearwater Pub . Lib . System, FL

Suzy and Rufus have been married for thirty-eight years. They met in the state where they both grew up: California. Suzy grew up in Berkeley and Rufus in Sacramento. Suzy graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a degree in European history. She met Rufus at the Davis campus while attending that campus for a year. They got married and lived in different places, including Canada, before settling into Connecticut, the state they now call home.

Suzy taught in 5th and 6th grades at Shannon Elementary School in Richmond, California for 3 years, and 2nd and 3rd grades at Southwest Elementary School in Torrington, Connecticut for 24 years before retiring this past June. She now enjoys writing full-time and visiting schools and libraries. The couple share their home with two cats, Teeter and Hoag. They have two daughters, Jennifer and Emily, and four grandchildren: Jake, Kenna, Gabby and Saylor. A fifth grandchild is due in September, 2006. Suzy's mother just turned 96.
