Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Norman is head over heels in love with the new girl in his class. He helps Wilhemina learn about the school and every time he looks at her or hears her voice, his knees go weak. Unfortunately, Norman is not the only one who adores Wilhemina. Arthur and Richard, the toughest and biggest boys in the class are also trying to get her attention. On Valentine's Day, they bully Norman and destroy the cards he has made, but they get their comeuppance from a surprising source. It's a sweet story with great illustrations that should please both boys and girls. The choice of hamsters instead of kids truly adds a light touch.

Valiska Gregory is the author of A Valentine For Norman Noggs, illustrated by Marsha Winborn. The idea for Shirley's Wonderful Baby came from one of her favorite bookstore owners. When she asked Shirley Mullin of Kids Ink Children's Bookstore about her new grandchild, Shirley would always reply, "He's wonderful!" The author thought that an older sibling might have a slightly different point of view.

Ms. Gregory lives with her husband in Indianapolis, Indiana, where she is Writer-in-Residence at Butler University.

Marsha Winborn, illustrator of A Valentine for Norman Noggs, has also illustrated Grandma's Cat and the Digby and Kate series. She lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
