Magdalen Nabb is the prize-winning author of The Enchanted Horse and the 6 [soon to be 10] Josie Smith titles based on her own childhood in the 1950s. She also writes books for adults in the crime genre.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2-3-- This transitional novel from Britain includes three short chapters about the adventures and mischief of young Josie Smith. In each episode, Josie means well, but always seems to get into trouble. In the first chapter, she tries to earn money to buy flowers for her mother's birthday. In a following chapter, after she spills paint on the floor and herself, she decides to run away. After each disaster, her mother comforts and reassures her. Josie is an endearing character, and Nabb includes many funny recurring images, such as how Josie shuts her eyes every time she tells a lie. Humorous black-and-white line drawings appear frequently throughout. While Johanna Hurwitz' characters come more to life, this warm, entertaining book is a good choice for collections needing additional chapter books for beginning readers. --Leslie Barban, Richland County Public Library, Columbia, SC
