A busy mom, Leslie A. Susskind has worked in advertising and marketing for years and is now writing children's books. She gets inspiration from her husband Bill and their two daughters. The family lives outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She has just finished the second book in The Zephram Tales, "The Tale of Time Warp Tuesday," and is hard at work on the third book in the series. She also just published the first book in her new Abercrombie Family Business series, "So you think you babysit monsters?" In addition to her novels, she has also written several manners themed books, including "The Kids' (and Parents', too!) Book of Good Sportsmanship," and "It's time for good manners!"

I toyed with using a lower rating because it's a funny book and has a great story for kids but the execution at times felt a little forced or a little predictable. But in the end my kids won out. We read it together and it's perfect for that pre-teen, young teen or a maybe 8 or 9 year-old. Some of the way she represents the kids and the main character are actually very clever and believable. For kids I'd recommend this. For adults having to read it to the kids it might be more of a four star. BTW--there seems to be some formatting issues with the online read format, but when I downloaded the PDF it all looked fine.
