Kathleen Kudlinksi the award-winning author of more than forty books for children, including the Boy, Were We Wrong series. She lives in Connecticut and Vermont.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-5-- Kudlinski describes the major episodes in the life of Helen Keller--the illness that left her deaf and blind, the arrival of teacher Annie Sullivan, her education, and her world travels. Coverage is brief; Keller's struggle to achieve a college education is given only a few pages. However, in the information that is given, Kudlinski manages to avoid too laudatory a tone. She mentions Mr. Keller's financial mismanagement (again, with few details), the strong control Sullivan exerted over Keller's life, and the much publicized plagiarism scandal that Keller experienced at age 12. Diamond's muted black - and - white sketches lend a gentle tone to the text, which will serve as an introduction for young readers to the life and accomplishments of this famous woman. This book covers much of the same information as Nigel Hunter's Helen Keller (Bookwright, 1986), which also includes photos and color illustrations. Older readers will prefer Catherine Owens Peare's The Helen Keller Story (Crowell, 1959) or Keller's own autobiography (Doubleday, 1954). --Susan Schuller, Milwaukee Public Library
