The author, Betsy Byars, really develops her characters. She backs up all the character's feelings. I read this as a child and again recently as a father
The author, Betsy Byars, really develops her characters. One example of that is when Tommy, the main character, is left on the farm. I read this as a child and again recently as a father.
Betsy Cromer Byars (born August 7, 1928) is an American author of children's books. Her novel Summer of the Swans won the 1971 Newbery Medal. She has also received a National Book Award for Young People's Literature for The Night Swimmers (1980) and an Edgar Award for Wanted.
I read this book as a child, and I consider it the first book I became emotionally invested in. In a lot of ways I was like Lennie as a child. I watched TV constantly and often wished to become part of a grand television-like drama.
Betsy Byars takes some interesting routes in the writing of this volume.
Lennie is addicted to television . The overall moral (tv isn't real, and you shouldn't take it too seriously) is a bit obvious and heavy-handed, but not enough to ruin the book. The main appeal of the story is in the way Byers paints very specific pictures of surroundings, in a way that sets a particular mood. Betsy Byars takes some interesting routes in the writing of this volume.

Author: Betsy Cromer Byars. Street Date: January 1, 1998. Betsy Byars began her writing career rather late in life. In all of my school years,. not one single teacher ever said to me, 'Perhaps you should consider becoming a writer, '" Byars recalls. Anyway, I didn't want to be a writer. As her family grew and her children started to read, she began to write books for young people and, fortunately for her readers, discovered that there was more to being a writer than sitting in front of a typewriter. Making up stories and characters is so interesting that I'm never bored. Each book has been a different writing experience.
