One day, Nora returns home from kindergarten upset because a boy in her class told her that she has the legs of a flamingo! When her mother gives her a magic wand to read people's minds, a new and fascinating world opens for her. She discovers that people don't always say what they think or think what they say. Fully of generosity and humor, Nora the Mind Reader is a beautifully imaginative book that illustrates the potential divide between thoughts and words in a clear and thoughtful way.

Orit Gidali was born in 1974. Her first book was published in 2003, and her second in 2006. Both titles are poetry books. Orit lives in Rehovot, Israel, is married to the poet Alex Ben-Ari, and is the mother of Hallel, Noa, Ofri, and Aner. Nora the Mind Reader is Orit's first picture book.
