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.
"There's an appealing folkloric tinge to this novel....Reluctant readers may also appreciate the very short chapters (some are no more than two pages in length) and the easygoing dialogue."
"Creech's bright humor, vivid characterization, and deft language, combined with the twists and turns of the plot, make reading this novel aloud a rare treat."
From the Publisher
Annotation Two orphans, Ruby and her brother, Dallas, are instructed by the evil Mr. Trepid--he runs the orphanage with his wife--that they must accompany the elderly Moreys on separate vacations. The two suspect something is amiss, but the Moreys just might prove to be looking out for the children's best interests.
First Line Dallas leaned far out of the window, his eyes fixed on a bird flying lazily in the distance. Sun slanted through the clouds above, as if a spotlight were aimed on the bird.
Editors Note "Trouble twins" Dallas and Florida are orphans who have given up believing there is such a thing as a loving home. Tiller and Sairy are an eccentric older couple who live in the beautiful, mysterious Ruby Holler, but they're restless for one more big adventure. When they invite the twins to join them on their journeys, they first must all stay together in the Holler, and the magic of the place takes over. Two pairs of lives grow closer, and are changed forever.
