    Patty Lovell's dad told her the best stories when she was a little girl, inspiring her to write her own. Patty has taught elementary school in London, Virginia, Harlem, and on Long Island. She currently teaches first grade and lives in Glen Cove, New York. 

    David Catrow is the illustrator of many picture books including Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon and its sequel Have Fun, Molly Lou Melon, written by Patty Lovell; I Wanna Iguana and its two companion books I Wanna New Room and I Wanna Go Home, written by Karen Kaufman Orloff; Our Tree Named Steve by Alan Zweibel;The Middle Child Blues by Kristyn Crow; and We the Kids: the Preamble to the Constitution. He lives in Ohio with his wife, Deborah.
    "Leave it to Molly to transform all her 'faults' into marvelous talents.. . . #Catrow's# pictures fill the pages with wild perspectives, goofy-looking kids, and hilarious details. . . . Leaves readers with the feeling that anything can be accomplished if you are the best person you can be and make the most of your gifts." (Kirkus Reviews)

    "What keeps the storytelling fresh is the crisp prose and the heroine's full-spead-ahead determination. . . . Catrow's full-bleed pencil-and-watercolor illustrations, awash in ripe colors and animated by slapstick exaggeration, radiate a winningly eccentric elegance." (Publishers Weekly)

    "The text is fast and funny, and Molly Lou is a fetching little heroine. Catrow's palette is intense. . . . This will make a comic readaloud." (The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books)

    • Very encouraging for young children

      My two year old loves this book. And so do I! We had a paperback copy of this book and my 2-year old ripped the cover and pages. I enjoyed this book so much myself that I had to purchase another in hardcover. It's a very encouraging book with great pictures. Young children are encouraged to be the best they can be despite what others might think of them.
