by Joseph Bruchac
Photographed by John Christopher Fine

Published by Richard K. Owen, 1999
32 pages
ISBN: 1-57274-327-1

Ages 7 - 10

Joseph Bruchac, who has already written an excellent autobiography for teen readers with Bowman's Store (Dial, 1997), tries his hand here at writng for younger readers. The result is one of the best autobiographies thus far in the Meet the Author series. In simple language, Bruchac honestly describes himself as a child: "I was a little know-it-all with glasses. I was scared of being beaten up, and I was also a tattletale. I think you wouldn't have liked me." He also describes his day-to-day adult life as an author for children and teens, and as an activist/storyteller from the Abenaki Indian community. Color photographs of Bruchac today, and black-and-white photos from his past are included throughout. (Meet the Author) CCBC categories: Biography/Autobiography.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
