Paula Danziger called Bruce Coville and Elizabeth Levy her best friend and her other best friend, and this close connection enabled them to lovingly capture Amber Brown's voice, sense of humor, big-heartedness, and her fondness for puns.
Paula Danziger (1944–2004) was a flamboyantly funny and deeply honest writer who had a direct line into kids’ hearts and funny bones.
