9780399221859: Orp and the chop suey burgers

Orp will do anything for some free travel, even if he has to win a cooking contest to get it. Hilarious and unpredictable, this entertaining sequel has Orp competing against an entire sea of middle-aged women in the New England regional cook-off.

About the Author:

Suzy Kline, the author of nineteen previous Horrible Harry books and four books about Song Lee, lives in Willington Connecticut with her husband, Rufus. Suzy and Rufus have been married for thirty-eight years. They met in the state where they both grew up: California. Suzy grew up in Berkeley and Rufus in Sacramento. Suzy graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a degree in European history. She met Rufus at the Davis campus while attending that campus for a year. They got married and lived in different places, including Canada, before settling into Connecticut, the state they now call home.

Suzy taught in 5th and 6th grades at Shannon Elementary School in Richmond, California for 3 years, and 2nd and 3rd grades at Southwest Elementary School in Torrington, Connecticut for 24 years before retiring this past June. She now enjoys writing full-time and visiting schools and libraries. The couple share their home with two cats, Teeter and Hoag. They have two daughters, Jennifer and Emily, and four grandchildren: Jake, Kenna, Gabby and Saylor. A fifth grandchild is due in September, 2006. Suzy's mother just turned 96. She dedicated her most recent book, Horrible Harry Takes the Cake to her.

Suzy and Rufus enjoy attending UConn football and basketball games, and Suzy uses the UConn library as a reference for her writing facts.

 

From School Library Journal:

Orp has always wanted to travel. He's now in the seventh grade and has never left Connecticut. When he reads about the Fu Chow Soy Sauce recipe competition that promises a trip for two to Disney World, he creates chop suey burgers. Orp doesn't win the Florida trip, but he does travel to Boston with his Uncle Gus as a semi-finalist and wins a year's supply of chop suey vegetables. All ends well as the veggies and Orp's recipe become a boon to his school fair, while his uncle has started dating the daughter of the Fu Chow Soy Sauce Company president. This slice-of-suburban-life novel is humorous but not slapstick, and is generally plausible. The characters are likable, the dialogue is both snappy and recognizable, and the pace is quick. Readers who enjoyed Kline's Orp (1989) or Herbie Jones (1985, both Putnam) won't be disappointed. --Maria B. Salvadore, District of Columbia Public Library
