Gary D. Schmidt

If you like Wednesday Wars...read OKAY For Now. The books do not have to be read in order to appreciate them, but you will recognize a character named Doug in both of them!
Wednesday War readers learned about Shakespeare too.
A reading group read Wednesday Wars...read the book and you will see why they served these cream puffs to their peers when they presented the book! Connecting food to books and reading is yummy fun!

Gary came for a visit to Mount Desert Island and met with 7th graders to talk about his book Trouble. I took this photo of him while he was being interviewed.

If you got to http://www.hmhbooks.com/schmidt/ you can read the first chapter of OKAY FOR NOW. This book is one of my new favorite books.
