Ana Maria Machado is one of the world's most distinguished writers for children, with more than 100 books published in her native Brazil and in more than 18 other countries. She has won the Hans Christian Andersen Award and the Iberoamerican Children's Literature Award, and she has been elected to the Brazilian Academy of Letters -- the first writer for children to be so honored. She has also been chosen for the honor list of the highly prestigious Dutch Prince Claus Award. Groundwood has published two of her novels, "Me in the Middle" (Americas Award Commended List) and "From Another World, " as well as her picture books "Wolf Wanted, " which won the Hors Concours, and "What a Party!" She lives in Rio de Janeiro. Jane Springer lives in Toronto.

Reviews


"Machado's finely sketched characters and settings propel this historical novel . . . This brief but action-packed novel offers memorable insights into slavery, colonial life, and the promise of freedom." -- Publishers Weekly
Praise for From Another World:
"[O]ffers a fascinating picture of Brazil's culture and history, cleverly wrapped in a ghost story." -- School Library Journal
