"Beautifully written." Mizz
"Ida B is a tremendously attractive character." The Book Bag
“There will be many, many readers like me; people who turn the last page of this book and feel a deep gratitude, a profound joy that both Ida B and Katherine Hannigan exist.” Kate DiCamillo, author of Because of Winn-Dixie
About the Author
Katherine Hannigan was raised in New York State and earned degrees in education, mathematics and art. She lives in northeast Iowa, which provided much of the inspiration for this book. “Ida B came to be,” she says, “because of my move to the Midwest. Hers is the life I would have chosen, if I could have.”
Top Customer Reviews
I can't believe there aren't any reviews of this yet! It's a wonderful book for kids. Ida B is a determined and creative young woman who struggles when dealing with some pretty hard life lessons, but ultimately wins through. It's a story of the power of forgiveness and love without being in any way preachy. katherine Hannigan has a deft touch and weaves this story with great magic and charm, and a great affection for nature. I hope she keeps writing! (It's also an utterly charming book for slightly older kids, too!)
