Product description

About the Author

BARNEY SALTZBERG is the author-illustrator of CRAZY HAIR DAY, the first book about Stanley Birdbaum. He is also the author-illustrator of CORNELIUS P. MUD, ARE YOU READY FOR BED? and many other titles. About STAR OF THE WEEK, he says, "I have found that making squiggle drawings is a great way to take people who don’t necessarily think that they can draw and watch them start making art! It’s a nonthreatening way to open the door to drawing. As for Stanley, once he had a pen in his hand, it was satisfying to see how he turned what seemed like a potentially disastrous moment into something positive."
