About the Author:

Libba Moore Gray has been an actress, a dancer, and for twenty years a teacher of high school English and drama. Her poetry and short stories have appeared in a number of literary magazines, but Miss Tizzy is her first writing for children. Ms. Gray's four children include a businessman, a ballerina, a teacher, and a professional clown. With her husband, Robert, she makes her home in Knoxville, Tennessee.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-Miss Tizzy, an elderly, somewhat eccentric black woman, lives in an idyllically multiethnic neighborhood. All of the houses are neat and white, with treeless, orderly yards-except for hers. She has a pink house and a lovely, overgrown garden, resplendant with flowers that spill out onto the sidewalk. The local children-about 10 of various ages-spend a lot of time with her, and the book describes what they do together on each day of the week. Every couple of pages end with the annoying refrain, "And the children loved it." However, in the only picture depicting parents, the two on-looking grownups don't look exactly thrilled-in fact, a mother's lips are turned down in a sad frown. One day (and perhaps it's from the strain of all that playing), Miss Tizzy falls ill, and her friends take her gifts and try to amuse her. Rowland's watercolor illustrations reflect the sweetness of the text, and are pleasant and pretty. Unfortunately, the story line is cloying and contrived, and no real sense of community comes across.
