100 Most Popular Children's Authors: Biographical Sketches and Bibliographies ebook


Sharron L. Mcelmeel pdf


Grade 6-9-This handy resource provides fairly extensive biographical information about writers enjoyed by elementary and middle school children. Authors of contemporary and classic novels and nonfiction titles are included. For each entry, several pages of background are followed by a selective, sometimes annotated book list of the person's works and several titles for further reading. This inconsistent use of annotations is bothersome. Occasional Web sites are also given. Clearly, depth of coverage can't be as complete as the multivolume Something about the Author (Gale) or the Biography Today: Author Series (Omnigraphics), but McElmeel more than adequately covers each writer's life and work. "Most popular" is always open to interpretation, and obviously not everyone will agree with this designation. Many of the writers are also found in Bernard Drew's The 100 Most Popular Young Adult Authors (Libraries Unlimited, 1997). There are black-and-white photos of fewer than half the entries. Helpful genre and general indexes conclude the volume. For libraries owning any of the biographical sets, this is not a first purchase. However, its accessible format will make it the preferred title to answer general questions. Useful for collections serving teachers and students.

Based on a 1997 survey of both teachers and students, this volume includes such well-known authors as Beverly Cleary (most recognized by the survey respondents) and classic writers like Lewis Carroll and C. S. Lewis. Each entry provides several pages about the author and his or her writings followed by a section called "Books and Notes," which has details about specific books and their themes, including bibliographic information. A list of additional material about or by the author completes each entry.

Stepping on the Cracks is based on memories of her childhood) or Lois Lowry (whose book The Giver sprang from a visit to her father in a nursing home) draw on their own lives for inspiration can help young readers understand the creative process.

Writers for Young Adults [RBB O 15 97], would have been helpful. An alphabetical cumulative index of the titles that are cited in the entries would also have been useful. However, even without these, the book is a worthwhile (and inexpensive) resource for elementary-and middle-school libraries and public libraries that serve young readers, especially when such multivolume series as Something About the Author are financially prohibitive. The information included in 100 Most Popular Children's Authors provides, in many instances, more details than can be found in some multivolume sets.
