About the Author

Eileen Spinelli lives in West Chester, Pennsylvania.

Anne Wilsdorf lives in Lausanne, Switzerland.


Gr 1-3-A young girl wants to write a story for the library contest, but how can she write the "best" story? She takes a family poll and gets conflicting advice. Should it be an adventure? A tragedy? A comedy? A romance? As she tries to please everyone, the story takes on a life of its own and becomes increasingly convoluted. Her mother finally offers the perfect advice-the best story comes from the heart. Once the young author begins to write what she cares about, things fall naturally into place. Eileen Spinelli introduces her book (Dial, 2008) in this "Special Appearance" video, offering some insights into how she became an author and where she got the idea for this story. Anne Wilsdorf's detail-filled, humorous watercolor-and-ink illustrations are scanned iconographically, with minor animation added, as a female narrator reads the tale with energy and unique voices for each character. Sprightly music accompanies the narration. This is a story that all young authors should appreciate with its underlying message of being true to yourself, and writing about what you know. A perfect introduction to creative writing units.-Teresa Bateman, Brigadoon Elementary School, Federal Way, WA Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
