Overview

Amber Brown's going through a growth spurt . . . and her body's not the only thing that's changing. Her mom and Max are engaged. Her dad is moving back from Paris. And now her school's overrun by skunks, and she feels like she's being held captive in a hot, crowded school bus that's going nowhere. But growth spurts and skunks are not her only concerns. Why can't her parents agree on anything . . . and most important, what will happen when Dad moves back?

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.

Danziger, P. (1977). Amber Brown sees red. New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons.Grades 2 through 4Luck seems to be on Amber¿s side. She did not study for the Math test, but a family of skunks makes the school too smelly, and classes have to be cancelled. Anxiety sets in when she wonders who will come to pick her up. Her mother is at an all-day seminar, and her father is in Paris. Max, her future stepfather, steps in. Amber, Brandi, her best friend, and Max have a great day at the mall. Amber¿s fun-filled day ends when her father calls to announce his return to New Jersey and his intention to request shared custody. The phone call brings to surface the tensions between Amber¿s parents. Amber feels conflicted about liking Max and angry with her parents for all the screaming and fighting. As she deals with changes outside and within her, she learns to accept life in its imperfections and finds the strength to cope with new situations.Amber Brown Sees Red is the sixth installment in the series that follows Amber through her growing pains. The book explores situations many children have to face¿divorce and its aftershocks, custody battles, resentful parents, and stepparents. Young readers see their own feelings and experiences in Amber¿s; as she realizes that neither she nor anyone else is perfect, she helps readers accept theirs and others¿ faults and work toward making things better. The plot is simple and easy to follow, and the main characters are well developed and realistic. The first-person account makes it easy for readers to relate to the main character. The supporting characters, however, are little more than caricatures. Created to provide comic relief to the heavy issues explored in the book, they undermine the depth of the story and can sometimes become irritating such as Brandi¿s catch phrase. The illustrations support readers as they transition from picture books to ¿real¿ books and help convey Amber¿s emotions.
