Amber Brown Is Tickled Pink

About the Story…

Beloved Amber Brown returns in a new book!

Amber can't wait to be Best Child when her mom and Max get married, but planning a wedding comes with lots of headaches. Amber can't find the right dress, her dad keeps making mean cracks about Max, and Mom and Max have very different ideas about how much this wedding should cost. Her mother even suggests they go to city hall and skip the party altogether! Even though adults can be a lot of work, Amber is determined to be the best Best Child ever. She helps find the perfect location, makes her dad shape up, and, with the help of best friend Justin, gives the perfect wedding speech.

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.


Amber Brown Is on the Move

About the Story…

Fun and not-so-fun changes are keeping Amber Brown, the most colorful chapter-book character, hopping!

Now that Amber's mom and Max are married, the three of them are moving to a new house and Amber is worried about more than just packing. How can she leave the home her dad used to live in? And with her dad dating again, how will they ever find time for just the two of them, like they used to? All of these changes make Amber's head spin, but with standardized tests coming up at school as well as a dance competition, she needs to focus more than ever. Sometimes, Amber realizes, moving on means taking one step at a time.

Bruce Coville and Elizabeth Levy perfectly capture the magic, heart, and delightfully punny humor of Paula Danziger's Amber Brown.
