I have been a fan of Patricia Newman every since reading her book, Plastic Ahoy. She writes accessibly and her books are always beautifully designed. I will be using her book, Sea Otter Heroes as a mentor text in a seventh grade research class this coming school year and hope to skype with Ms. Newman.
