About 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.
Tony Ross lives in London, England.

I recommend this book to children of all ages, especially those in elementary school. This book is about a girl who gets in a fight with her best friend, which happens often in real life. How they resolve it can help people to resolve their own problems with their friends.

This is a great read for younger readers! The message of this book is wonderful because many young children may be able to relate to the events of this book. It¿s about a girl named Amber Brown and her best friend Justin. Justin¿s dad has just gotten a new job and they must now move. Amber of course is very upset and doesn¿t want him to leave. They then begin to fight and decide that the only way to deal with these issues is to deal with it together.

"Amber Brown is Not a Crayon" is an excellent transition book for readers just begginging to read chapter books. The language is simple enough for third graders and up to understand. This book is about a girl named Amber who has to deal with her best friend moving to another state far away from her. It shares with readers how she overcomes her feelings toward the situation and how she tries to just enjoy the time she has left with her best friend. Many children go through this situation everyday! This is a great book to have in a classroom library!

This book is about Amber Brown and her best friend Justin. Justin¿s parents are trying to sell their house so they can move for Justin¿s dad¿s new job. Amber doesn¿t want him to leave and Justin won¿t talk about it. Amber is also dealing with her parent¿s recent divorce. The two begin to fight and soon decide that the only way to deal with these issues is to deal with it together. Students will be able to relate to Amber.

Third grader, Amber Brown, is sad when she finds her best friend is moving away. This book is a good alternative to Junie B. Jones for parents who object to Junie B's language and ways.
