about

For Every Aspiring young author, this story of an author (and, of course, her dog!) offers both answers and inspiration!

Ever wonder what it's like to be an author?

Does she write in a quiet corner somewhere? Or someplace loud and busy? Does she have ideas forty times a day? Or does she sometimes get stuck? And how does her dog make her lucky?

New York Times bestselling author Mary Lyn Ray, together with illustrations from Steven Henry (Ella the Elegant Elephant) that are chock full of hidden jokes, answers these questions and more in a story of one writer, her furry friend, and a school visit that brings authors young and old (and dogs!) together.

Mary Lyn Ray has written many acclaimed books for children, including New York Times bestseller and ALA Notable Book Stars, illustrated by Marla Frazee; Pumpkins, illustrated by Barry Root; Mud, illustrated by Lauren Stringer; and Go to Sleep, Little Farm, illustrated by Christopher Silas Neal. Because she always wanted to be a writer,...

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Mary Lyn Ray's Stars: " Ray (Christmas Farm) and Frazee (The Boss Baby), two big talents beating as one, assemble a cast of junior philosophers to help them muse on why stars - as celestial bodies, as shapes, as symbols, as talismans - hold so much meaning and mystery for us... while the prevailing tone is contemplative, it's more quirky than languid, capturing the delicious freedom of Ray's mind at play. Her prose wanders in the best sense of the word..." -Publishers Weekly, starred review" Ray's simple ode to stars is an engaging concept book... [Stars] celebrates everyday experiences of children, prompting observation of the world around us, and it's beautifully structured for eliciting children's conversation and response. There are bits of humor and poetry, an engaging cast of players/star watchers, and many possibilities for pairing the book with crafts, activities, and other books, too." -School Library Journal, starred review
