It's hard for me to believe that the 40th anniversary of the publication of my first book BUSYBODY NORA has taken place. In 1976, when the book was published, it told about five year old Nora who lived in a New York City apartment building. Now all these years later, the book is still available (Harper Trophy paperback) and amazingly Nora is still five years old. I can't offer you a slice of birthday cake or a party bag with souvenirs to take home, but if you read BUSYBODY NORA, I can promise you a chance to make friends with a lively young girl who will make you laugh. Other books about Nora, her younger brother Teddy, and their neighbors Russell, Elisa and Mrs. W. are available as ebooks via Amazon. Happy Birthday to Nora and happy reading to everyone!
