About the Author:

Marie Day is the author and illustrator of two books, Dragon in the Rocks and Quennu and the Cave Bear. For many years she was an award-winning costume and stage designer for operas and plays all over North America, including the Stratford Festival.

Review:

Marie Day writes with great passion and concern for those who have schizophrenia. (Zoë Johnstone Guha Resource Links 2002-04-01)

This book is about more than homelessness and mental illness; it is also about the difference a friend can make. Author/illustrator Marie Day's story is very readable. Children will want to know what happens to these characters. The illustrations are a little crazy too, rendered in a mixed media including pencil, markers and pencil crayons. This is an excellent book for starting a discussion with children about homelessness and mental illness. It is now becoming more acceptable and necessary to discuss these social problems with children. Therefore, there is an increasing demand for children's books that deal with these topics. The author's personal note at the back of the book allows the reader a glimpse into why the author wrote this story. Edward the Crazy Man is a recommended purchase for public libraries and classroom collections. Recommended. (Catherine Hoyt Canadian Materials 2002-05-10)
