Author Essay

As a former teacher-turned-editor, who read DIBS many times before even coming to work here at Ballantine, I feel very connected to this book.  The author is a leading authority on play therapy and the treatment of emotionally disturbed children.  Dibs is one of these lost children.  The story takes us through his long journey from being labeled as "mentally defective," to emerging as a gifted and lovable young man.  Whether you’re a teacher, a parent, a psychologist, or just someone who loves to actually feel what they’re reading, DIBS is for you.

–Laura Paczosa, Editorial Assistant
