Judy Delton was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, and has lived there most of her life. She has published more than one hundred books for children, including the popular Pee Wee Scouts series. A master at creating short, amusing episodes, Delton writes about ordinary children in a way often compared with that of Beverly Cleary, Eleanor Estes, and Carolyn Haywood.From Publishers Weekly:
Delton's heroine Angel is off on her mental trampoline again, jumping to the wrong conclusions. The sudden changes in her mother are misconstrued as crimes, and quick-witted Angel is ready at the rescue. But her mother's not in trouble, she's just met a man. Or is this even a worse crime? After all, when Rudy comes to visit, he seems to stay forever, practically moving in. Then he brings all his belongings to their town and gets a job as a TV clown. What could be more embarrassing? Angel's acceptance of this marvelous man is slow enough, and the page-turning, sprightly humor of characters they can touch will help readers overlook the path's being rather straight and smooth.
