it was amazing

The Amber Brown series, is the first book in the series and is a must for any growing girl. It is a great series for young girls and there is no doubt that whoever you are, and at whatever age you are there is something in Amber you can relate to. If it's her messy hair, her love of Bubble gum, her parent's divorce or the moving away of her best friend, there is something you can identify with.

The first book in the series, ‘Amber Brown is Not a Crayon’ sees amber deal with her best friend moving away to another city as well as coping with her parents divorce. It’s a book many children will be able to relate to, which deals with issues in a realistic way. It will help children who are going through similar problems of their own.

The series is told is first person, voiced by Amber Brown. It is a humorous read, and as the series progresses, Amber gets older and faces other common problems that readers will again be able to identify with. The series would be suitable for KS2 children to read on their own. However, the books are more aimed at a female audience. There is a good balance of pictures that helps readers picture Amber and her friends and family. Paula Danziger gets an accurate message across to her target audience.
