About the Author

Erin Soderberg Downing was obsessed with Disney's The Little Mermaid as a kid. She loved Ariel's sense of adventure, and longed to explore and learn about unfamiliar places. Growing up, she dreamed of venturing into outer space, hoped someday she might live in New York City, and planned to travel the world. Though she never made it to space, Erin did live in New York City (as well as in England and Sweden), and she has explored many countries around the world. Now, she lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with her husband, three adventure-loving kids, and a mischievous Goldendoodle named Wally. Before becoming an author, she was a children's book editor, a cookie inventor, and also worked for Nickelodeon. She has written many books for young readers, including the Quirks and Puppy Pirates series.

Disney's DARING DREAMERS CLUB is a middle-grade series about a group of ambitious, smart, and fun friends who are all united by one thing: big dreams! Book # 1 focuses on Milla and I love it's diversity regarding race, culture and family. This group of 5th-grade girls are brought together at school to form an advisory group under the direction of a wonderful teacher, Ms. Bancroft. She hands out personal journals to each girl and prompts them to write about their favourite Disney Princess and explain why that particular one connects with them. Milla chooses Belle from Beauty and the Beast because she loves "adventure in the great wide somewhere" and that lines up exactly with Milla's hopes and dreams for her own life. The girl's become great friends and in so doing they provide support for each other in their life choices. Milla is a strong character that shows wisdom beyond her years and a lovely caring heart towards those around her. I think this well-written, inspirational book will be a huge hit with this age group because they can relate to the turbulence and drama of securing friendships. They will come to realize through perseverance and reaching out to others for moral support their life's journey will be much sweeter. They will discover that following your dreams with a little help from your friends can make those dreams come true. I highly recommend this book and look forward to book number 2 - "Piper Cooks Up A Plan."
