Book Description

January 2006
Author Paula Danziger loves to write for and about kids, and kids love her! They especially love her feisty and lovable character Amber Brown.
Putnam is pleased to present the third book in the Amber Brown series, Amber Brown Goes Fourth illustrated by Tony Ross), a realistic, poignant portrayal of Amber and her single mom, who are both adjusting to divorce. And like the series, Amber Brown Goes Fourth is highlighted with Danziger's lively, laugh-out-loud, first person narrative.

Amber Brown has conquered third grade with her best friend moving away, and chicken pox in London with her Aunt Pam, but now... fourth grade! Still missing Justin and adjusting to her mom beginning to date, Amber is determined to substitute a new friend at school named Brandi as her new best friend. But Amber finds out that you can't "substitute" a best friend; one has to accept each new friend as they are and let the friendship grow. She wonders how she can keep people who are far away from her -- her dad and Justin -- in her life and whether anything will ever be the same again.

Paula Danziger's appeal is also strong with the young adult crowd as well.
Her titles in this genre include, The Cat Ate My Gymsuit, Remember Me to Harold Square, The Divorce Express, Can You Sue Your Parents for Malpractice? and Thames Doesn't Rhyme with James.

Product Details

Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-4?In the third entry of this popular series, Amber Brown begins fourth grade without her best friend, Justin, who has moved. Still unhappy over her parents' divorce, she doesn't want to meet the man her mother is seeing. To top it off, instead of going to Justin's house after school, she has to go to Elementary Extension. Determined not to let her problems get her down, she makes a new friend (after a few false starts), participates in a burping contest, and eventually realizes that her mother, too, needs to move on with her life. Reluctant and beginning readers will be drawn in by Danziger's present-tense, staccato style and by the short chapters. Kids coping with problems similar to Amber's will find encouragement, sympathy, and an upbeat way of taking responsibility for solving them. Entertaining and satisfying, this is a first purchase, whether or not the rest of the series is owned.?Connie Parker, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Cleveland, OH

From Booklist

Gr. 2^-4. Amber Brown is back, her voice as funny and vulnerable as ever. She's entering fourth grade in a panic. Her parents are newly divorced; her best friend has moved away. How will she cope? She doesn't win the playground burping contest, but she does make a new friend and begins, very reluctantly, to think about accepting her mother's serious boyfriend. Better than You Can't Eat Your Chicken Pox, Amber Brown , this simple chapter book has the immediacy of the first title, Amber Brown Is Not a Crayon (1994). Fans will recognize the mundane and the cosmic when Amber Brown goes "forth." Hazel Rochman --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars L.Newman June 29 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This entertaining book was an easy read and provided much pleasure. Amber Brown is nervous about starting fourth grade, misses her best friend who just moved away, and would love to have her Dad living at home again. These issues are apparent throughout the whole story. Her dad calls her before the first day of school and at the end of the day to let her know that he too wishes he could be there but the divorcee makes this impossible. The usual fourth grade things happen the first day (teasing, armpit noises, who went where for vacation, etc.) in school and Amber is able to make a new friend. They are placed in detention together due to their excessive giggling. Amber is able to realize that life does go on. The illustrations compliment the text in their simplicity and originality. At one point, Amber writes what she wants her new teacher to know about her and it is done in a child like scroll. This is the third book in the series and worth reading. I highly recommend this book.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a wonderful book. Amber is entering the fourth grade with all of the normal concerns. Along with this, she is also upset about her best friend, Justin, moving away, and her father and mother being divorced. Amber is able to meet a new girl the first day and decides that she will have a new best friend and life does go on. This is a quick, easy read and one that can be read out loud as well.
