Praise

A CCBC Choice for 2015

* “Despite the accolades, her voice is chatty and engaged, with not a hint of literary hauteur. Paterson’s legions of fans, young and old, will welcome this peek into her life and process.” – Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* “What absolutely shines through is Paterson’s warm, self-effacing humor, and the extraordinary humility of a writer who has won two National Book Awards, two Newbery Medals, and the Hans Christian Andersen Medal. Like Mark Twain, to whom she is distantly related, Paterson is a true American treasure.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review


* “Paterson’s legions of fans, young and old, will welcome this peek into her life and process.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“This set of personal tales offers the same openness and vibrant detail that helped Paterson garner Newbery Medals and National Book Awards…For those of us never invited to dinner in Paterson’s undoubtedly welcoming home, this book allows us at least to imagine the stories we might hear while doing the dishes.” — School Library Journal

“A highly recommended read for Paterson fans, or anyone who delights in children’s literature.” —BookPage

“[Paterson’s] sense of humor and her adventurous spirit shining through the narrative.”  —VOYA

“Readers will gain an understanding not only of the author herself, but also where her books and characters originated.” — LMC
