KidLit TV | A Tribute to Paula Danziger
A Tribute to Paula Danziger with BRUCE COVILLE, ELIZABETH LEVY, and a SPECIAL GUEST!
“Paula used to teach kids: put a red line through your funny lines, put a blue line through your sad lines, and look at the page. It should be purple” –– Elizabeth Levy
In this interview we learn how:
• Bruce and Elizabeth write the Amber Brown stories while sitting across the table from each other!
• Amber Brown was inspired by a real character in Paula Danziger’s life to make a story purple! (It’s great advice for writers of all ages!)
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.
