Author Info
Sharon Creech
Although born in the United States, Sharon Creech has spent many years living in England. In fact, it was while living in England that Creech learned she had won the most prestigious American award for children's literature--the Newbery Medal for her 1995 novel WALK TWO MOONS. Creech's first book, ABSOLUTELY NORMAL CHAOS, was published in 1990. Raised in a suburb of Cleveland, Creech is a Graduate of Ohio's Hiram College and has a master's degree in English and writing from George Mason University. Creech also writes books for adults under the name Sharon Rigg.
Author and illustrator Christopher (Chris) Raschka creates picture books on such subjects as race relations, friendship, and the wonder and beauty of jazz. Although he was accepted to medical school, Raschka instead decided to pursue a career in art. He has worked as an illustrator for newspapers and magazines but eventually turned to writing and illustrating children's books. His first book, R AND R, was published in 1990; it was followed in 1992 by his highly praised, lyrical introduction to the life of jazz musician Charlie Parker: CHARLIE PARKER PLAYED BE BOP. His 1993 picture book YO! YES? earned him a Caldecott Honor for his illustrations and was also the U.S. winner of the UNICEF-Ezra Jack Keats Award.
From the Publisher
Annotation 12-year-old Rosie has had an argument with lifelong friend Bailey, the blind boy next door who is closer than a brother. Bailey is mysteriously angry because Rosie secretly learned to read Braille. Even worse for Rosie, the pretty new girl who just moved in across the street has been flirting with him. As she cooks an Italian dinner, Granny Torrelli advises Rosie by telling stories from her own childhood that are surprisingly similar to what Rosie's going through. As Granny Torrelli cooks each separate dish and imparts her wisdom, sprinkled with Italian phrases, the situation gradually looks better to Rosie until the problem is solved and Rosie and Bailey are friends again. Written by Newbery Medal recipient Sharon Creech, author of WALK TWO MOONS, THE WANDERER, and ABSOLUTELY NORMAL CHAOS. A 2004 American Library Association Notable Children's Book.
Editors Note Bailey, who is usually so nice, Bailey, my neighbor, my friend, my buddy, my pal for my whole life, knowing me better than anybody, that Bailey, that Bailey I am so mad at right now, that Bailey, I hate him today.Twelve-year-old Rosie and her best friend, Bailey, don't always get along, that's true. But Granny Torrelli seems to know just how to make things right again with her interesting stories and family recipes. It's easier to remember what's important about love, life, and friendship while Granny Torrelli makes soup.
