About the Author
Alan Silberberg is a children's TV and film writer who has worked for Disney and Nickelodeon, among other major companies. Originally from the Boston area, he lives with his family in Montreal, Canada.
"Alan Silberberg has written an astounding illustrated novel that deals with the loss of a parent. Milo's feelings are real and raw, and he's busy coping with trying to be in 7th grade, while sorting out needing a parent who is no longer there. Alternately hilarious and heartbreaking, readers will effortlessly be drawn to Milo and his friends and family. This is not simply a book about losing a parent...it is a pitch perfect story of being in middle school, the push/pull of need and independence, and the story of a boy."
