Paula Danziger wrote more than twenty-five books for children, including The Cat Ate My Gymsuit, There’s a Bat in Bunk Five, Can You Sue Your Parents for Malpractice?, and the Amber Brown series. Paula grew up wanting to be an author… and then she became one. She was the kind of colorful character you might find in one of her books. She loved to play, make new friends, and wear purple clothes and nail polish. Sadly, Paula Danziger passed away on July 8, 2004. Amber Brown—and the rest of her books—will continue live on.
