About the Author

Patricia Polacco ( is the beloved New York Times bestselling author and illustrator of over fifty picture books. She visits as many as two hundred classrooms in a single year, not only speaking but listening to the hundreds of children that she meets. Grateful for what teachers have done for her, she is also a popular keynote speaker celebrating teachers everywhere. She lives in Union City, Michigan, where she enjoys speaking to the myriad children who come to visit her and the famous meteor, the object of one of Patricia's best-known stories.


"Polacco introduces readers to another inspirational teacher from her past in this inspiring tale. . . . This story from the author's life, colorfully illustrated with pencils and markers in her signature style, is affecting, engaging, and informative."--Booklist

"Polacco's colorful illustrations are engaging, with pencil lines used in the characters' facial expressions to evoke a range of emotion. . . . Add Miss Keller to Polacco's collection of inspirational teachers, including Mr. Falker, Mr. Lincoln, and Miss Chew."--School Library Journal

"Inspired by Polacco's experience growing up and the teacher who encouraged her to write, students can relate to Tricia's experience and struggle in trying to please a teacher who seems impossible to please."--School Library Connection
