It would be the most exciting day of the whole school year! A real author was coming to talk at Eddie's school. To get ready for the day, Eddie and his third-grade classmates had been reading, reading, reading. In every one of the author's books, Eddie had found a part that seemed just for him. "How does the author do that?" he asked his teacher. "That's a great question," the teacher said. "You'll have to ask the author." Eddie wondered if the stories he wrote could ever be like a real author's
At last the day comes. Eddie's class files into the gym, and there is the author, testing the microphone. The assembly period whizzes by while the author talks. Will Eddie have a chance to ask his important question when she finishes?
Louise Borden visits many schools, and her own experiences provide a rich background for this delightful story of a small boy and what happens when he meets a real author. Just-right illustrations in full color enrich a book that will speak directly to young readers everywhere.
