Lyhyt elämäkerta
Kate DiCamillo's writing journey has been a truly remarkable one. She grew up in Florida and moved to Minnesota in her twenties, when homesickness and a bitter winter led her to write Because of Winn-Dixie -- her first published novel, which became a runaway bestseller and snapped up a Newbery Honor. The Tiger Rising, her second novel, was also set in Florida and went on to become a National Book Award finalist. Since then, the best-selling author has explored settings as varied as a medieval castle and a magician's theater while continuing to enjoy great success, winning two Newbery Medals and being named National Ambassador for Young People's Literature. She now has almost 30 million books in print worldwide.

Now, for the first time ever, Kate DiCamillo is returning to the world of a previous novel to tell us more about a character whom her fans already know and love. In Louisiana's Way Home, set two years after the events of National Book Award finalist Raymie Nightingale, she picks up the story of Raymie's friend Louisiana Elefante, who uncovers difficult truths about her past -- and makes choices that will determine her future.

Kate DiCamillo's books' themes of hope and belief amid impossible circumstances and their messages of shared humanity and connectedness have resonated with readers of all ages around the world. In her instant #1 New York Times bestseller The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, a haughty china rabbit undergoes a profound transformation after finding himself face down on the ocean floor -- lost and waiting to be found. The Tale of Despereaux -- the Newbery Medal-winning novel that later inspired an animated adventure from Universal Pictures -- stars a tiny mouse with exceptionally large ears who is driven by love to become an unlikely hero. The Magician's Elephant, an acclaimed and exquisitely paced fable, dares to ask the question What if? And Kate DiCamillo's second Newbery Medal winner, Flora & Ulysses, was released in 2013 to great acclaim, garnering five starred reviews and an instant spot on the New York Times bestseller list.

Born in Philadelphia but raised in the South, Kate DiCamillo now lives in Minneapolis, where she faithfully writes two pages a day, five days a week.



A charming tale with absolutely wonderful illustrations. An old sea captain sees some whimsical puppets in the window of a store and takes them home. One puppet in particular catches his eye. When he goes home all he can do is stare at her and cry. The next morning the landlord discovers that he has died and the puppets start another journey. The puppets know that they are a set and they are part of a story. The problem is they don't know what their story is or what their role should be. There is a young girl, a hunstmen, a wolf, an owl, and a king. Exceptionally illustrated and told. A tale i will gladly read to my daughter.… (lisätietoja)

I reread this with my daughter and though it was darker than I remembered, I loved the message in the end. I think DiCamillo has a wonderful skill for bringing a scene to life and I won't soon forget the dark dungeons, the rat with a spoon for a crown, the outlawing of soup, or the brave mouse whose heart is even bigger than his ears.

A gorgeous extended-family story of love, grief, and life. Ferris was born at the base of a ferris wheel, delivered into her grandmother's loving hands. She and her best friend, Billy Jackson, are old souls. Ferris doesn't quiet understand her younger sister, Pinky, who wants nothing more than to be a famous outlaw. But she has a lot of words to describe Pinky (and all her experiences), thanks to a fourth grade teacher who emphasized building vocabulary. At a time several years ago, Ferris's father told her, "You have waded deeper into the great river of life." Ferris had no idea what he meant at the time but, throughout the course of the novel, comes to understand what he meant as she experiences the full wonder of life, friendship, love, and belonging.… (lisätietoja)

Orris the rat lives alone in an abandoned barn; he has a cozy nest with a red velvet slipper, a sardine can, and a marble. When a young owl called Timble gets a foot caught in a mousetrap, Orris is afraid to help, but following the wisdom of the sardine can ("Make the good and noble choice!!") and remembering the story of the lion and the mouse, he helps free Timble. Timble, grateful, brings Orris a butterscotch candy, and stays to hear a new story night after night.
