Other Books By Robin Friedman:The Silent Witness: A True Story of the Civil War"Lula's experiences are the basis for this thoughtful tale. The delicate, detailed illustrations convey the experience of living in a civil war with haunting power."-The New York Times Book Review"Friedman expertly weaves the major facts of the Civil War into her narrative, always returning to Lula's experiences as a touchstone By focusing on Lula and her doll-the 'silent witness' of the title-the grand sweep of history is placed very firmly and humanely within the grasp of young readers."-Kirkus Reviews"Friedman's economical text clearly shows how the Civil War touched the life of a young child."-School Library Journal How I Survived My Summer Vacation: And Lived to Write the Story"Friedman's comic timing along with her insights are what readers will remember."-Publishers Weekly "Jackie's tantalizing first lines introduce each chapter, while his witty, fast-paced narrative relates the silly and serious episodes The exaggerated characters and broad humor have a cinematic quality. Like an old 1950s comedy, this first novel is entertaining summer reading."-Booklist"Cleverly drawn characters use convincing dialogue and the plot is loaded with humor The book is an amusing light read that makes some good points about honesty, understanding others, and friendship."-Voice of Youth Advocates
