About the Author

Angelica Banks is not one writer but two. Heather Rose and Danielle Wood are both award-winning authors of adult literary fiction and have been friends for years. They had much more fun than you can imagine writing Finding Serendipity and A Week Without Tuesday and spent a lot of time eating chocolate custard and strawberries.


"Young writers will find inspiration in the tale--especially those who have a story within them but might be too shy to tell it." --The New York Times Book Review

"This enchanting story celebrates the imagination and the connection writers feel with their stories. Spunky characters; spot-on pacing, providing perfectly timed plot revelations; and fully imagined world make this a charming winner for curling up with a good book or classroom read-alouds." --Booklist. STARRED REVIEW

"With cinematic imagery and keen wit, the authors construct an inventive novel that raises intriguing questions about the relationship between authors and their characters, and reaches "The End" all too soon." --Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW

"Magically whimsical and filled with adventurous twists that will keep readers turning the pages." --School Library Journal

"A middle-grade fantasy about the magic in writing stories . . . An original, wholehearted affirmation of the written word and the imagination." --Kirkus Reviews

"More than the plentiful adventure and engaging characters (emphatically including the dog), it's the language here that delights, with clever, convivial wordplay and an unabashed sense of joy; softly sketched spot art adds to the accessibility and the atmosphere. Give this to budding young writers ready to start at The Beginning." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"A classic tale that will be loved by many." --Lamont Books

"A fantastic adventure story brimming with imagination, a love of books, and a big dash of magic. . . . Finding Serendipity has pirates and adventures, sailing ships and oodles of magic, and a silver thread that creates words and stories. . . . You'll never read a book in quite the same way again!" --My Book Corner

"I loved this book because it was adventurous, exciting, descriptive, and a mysterious story." --Lilian, age 9

"Tuesday McGillycuddy is a wonderful heroine--brave, clever, quirky, and fully of energy."
