Avi Wortis is known to his readers simply as Avi. Raised in New York City, he was ironically assigned a tutor in high school to help him with his writing. His first novel, WHO WAS THAT MASKED MAN, ANYWAY?, was published in 1992 while he was working as a librarian. Avi writes historical fiction, fantasies, thrillers, and comic novels. In 1991, THE TRUE CONFESSIONS OF CHARLOTTE DOYLE was named a Newbery Honor Book and winner of the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award for Fiction. In 2003, CRISPIN: THE CROSS OF LEAD received the much-coveted Newbery Medal.
From the Publisher
Annotation This installment of Poppy's story centers on the joys and sorrows of family. The lovable, plump deer mouse and her husband, Rye, happily live in Dimwood Forest with their many children. They're worried about Ragweed, Jr., who, at three months, has become a difficult, irritating adolescent. Taking after the uncle he was named after, he ignores his parents, is terribly rude, and has even dyed his fur so he'll look like his best friend, Mephitis, who is a skunk. Poppy isn't sure what to do, and when she's forced to visit her family--with whom she doesn't get along very well--across the forest, she takes Junior with her in effort to reconnect. While very humorous, this story also addresses the complexity of family relationships, prejudice, and love. Accompanied by B&W illustrations, this is the fifth addition to the much-loved Poppy series.
