I have to be honest. I LOVE love LOvE Barbara O'Connor. She was ICCSD's visiting author in 2008-09, and she was just a peach. How to Steal a Dog is a great book, and Fame and Glory in Freedom, Georgia is super, too.
Ms. O'Connor's blog, Greetings from Nowhere, is one I read every day. I often leave comments as well. I really like how Barbara shares her writing experiences - the good and the bad. The third graders in 3M read this book last year in guided reading, and enjoyed it immensely. What are you thinking? Am I pressuring you if I tell you this should be the first title to read? :-)
