Descriptions, Reviews, Etc.

Contributor Bio(s): uis Sachar was born in East Meadow, New York, moved to Southern California when he was nine, and now lives in Austin, Texas. Louis's first book for children, Sideways Stories from Wayside School was accepted for publication during his first week of law school. Although Louis graduated and passed the bar exam, he opted to be a full-time writer for children rather than a lawyer.

Louis met his wife, Carla, when he was a visiting author at a school in Texas. She was a counselor at the same school. They have a daughter, Sherre. Louis likes to play chess, cards, ski, play the guitar (and sing loudly), but mostly he likes spending time with Carla and Sherre.

Reviewed by Publishers Weekly Reviews (PW Reviews 1992 July #3)
This First Stepping Stone book (see preceding review) heralds the series debut of nine-year-old Marvin Redpost. He is convinced he is Prince Robert, the King of Shampoon's long-lost son currently being sought in a much-publicized campaign. First, Marvin is the only person in his family with red hair and blue eyes. Next, Marvin's teacher says that because he is left-handed he must have royal blood. And finally, Marvin does not remind his grandmother of anyone else in the family. All of this assures Marvin that he must have been kidnapped at birth and accidentally given to Mr. and Mrs. Redpost. Though the story line is frivolous, lively dialogue and Marvin's endless imagination command steady attention. Characterization, however scanty, is at least true to life, and the unresolved ending leaves readers something to think about. The rigid black-and-white illustrations, on the other hand, add little. Ages 6-9. (Aug.) Copyright 1992 Cahners Business Information.
