"Louis Sachar is magic to the toughest circle of critics: librarians, children's booksellers, teachers - and, most of all, kids."-"USA Today""Sachar's touch is as deft as ever and the book is a page-turner."-"Detroit Free-Press ""Mr. Sachar's gentle but surefire approach nails down challenging issues such as racism, teen romance and drugs."-"Dallas Morning News ""Sachar has a talent for creating realistic relationships between unlikely friends. Although that's a staple device of children's literature, it often works by drawing on cliches. Sachar's characters, though, are never stereotypes, but always vividly alive."-"Los Angeles Times ""His prose is clear and relaxed, and funny in a low-key, observant way."-"New York Times" "Part of what makes Small Steps" "so believable and appealing is that its characters do have insecurities, and they aren't ashamed to let them show."-"BookPage""Sachar is a master storyteller who creates memorable characters."-"School Library Journal""""Cleverly wrought...heartwarming, witty and suspenseful."-"Time Out New York Kids "Praise for Louis Sachar's "Holes": "A dazzling blend of social commentary, tall tale and magic realism."-"Publishers Weekly" (starred review) "A brilliant achievement.""-School Library Journal" "A smart jigsaw puzzle of a novel."-"The New York Times" "Imaginative plotting and memorable characters make this novel a winner."-"Book Magazine" "From the Hardcover edition."About the Author:
