Here is a charming picture book about an author's much anticipated visit to a school — and what happens after she leaves.

Third Street School is buzzing with excitement. Author Amanda Drake is coming to visit! The kids have read all her books. They've hung a welcome banner in the hall and pinned drawings on the classroom walls. Then the big day arrives! And Amanda Drake is everything the kids hoped she'd be. She reads stories, cuddles the stuffed animals, and tells the kids what it's like to be a writer. Then one child comes up with an idea: "It would be really cool if you would write a book about your visit to our school." And that's precisely what Amanda Drake does! Eve Bunting's happy book, a Society of School Librarians International Honor Book, is written in playful rhyme and illustrated with zest by Suzanne Bloom.
