About the Author:

Marcie Aboff is the author of more than 75 fiction and nonfiction books for children. She is a council member of the Rutgers University Council on Children’s literature, member of the Authors Guild, and member of SCBWI. She has three children, and when she isn’t writing or visiting schools, she spends her time playing tennis, traveling, reading, and eating as much chocolate as she can.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr2–Ben and Jill love to go to Jo-Jo's Jelly Bean Shop, especially on Saturdays when the proprietor awards a jar of the candy to the child who can answer a riddle. Ben knows the answer every time, but he is too shy to speak up, even with his sibling's encouragement. Aboff skillfully describes the boy's efforts to overcome his timidity. Children will identify with Ben and cheer when he is finally successful. There are contextual clues in Billin-Frye's delightful color cartoons, which feature a multicultural cast of characters. This book holds its own with the best of Cynthia Rylant's "Henry and Mudge" titles (S & S) in terms of writing and illustration. With its drama, alliteration, and wonderful depiction of a shy child breaking through a barrier, this is a winner.–Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MI
