    About Natale Ghent


    1. Natale Ghent has been writing stories since she was six Her first books, written and illustrated, revolved around a family of circles a momma circle, a papa circle and two baby circles The momma circle wore a fur stole, distinguishing herself from the papa circle, who wore a fedora, naturally Natale graduated from writing about circles to writing and illustrating stories about a small fairy, and later, to stories about talking guinea pigs and eventually humans.When Natale was very young, she wanted to be an archeologist, a ballerina, a veterinarian, a singer and a magician, but not necessarily in that order Later in life, she realized she could be all these things and through her writing She says, I never set out to be a novelist in the way that so many do these days All I knew was that I had a voracious curiosity about life and that I loved telling stories I simply stumbled along until writing took me by the hand and refused to let go, though I recognize now that there were many signposts guiding me along the way I come from a long line of consummate story tellers It just never occurred to me that I could tell stories for a living And now I can t imagine doing anything else Of NO SMALL THING she says, The story is based on true events from my childhood I carried it in my heart for years until it begged to be put on paper I wrote the book for my family and for anyone, young or old, who has struggled for something they believe in I never imagined the story would mean so much to so many children I m humbled by the letters and stories these children send to me.

    1. The Good Stuff * Wonderful story that boys in the 9 - 12 age will love, especially if they are not hockey obsessed stereotypical Canadian boys (Yup folks, Jake is going to love this one) * Delightfully unusual characters * There is a ghost story, its minor, but its still there and I LOVE ghost stories * The friendship between the boys really rings true and is very honestly portrayed * It reminded me of my youth as an "Odd kid" * Very realistic portrayal of boys and some of the situations they fi [...]

    2. I thought this book was interesting, but lacked character development. Larry was very one dimensional and, other than being bully, I didn't really know anything about him. Even though I liked Itchy, Boney, and Squeak, their nicknames didn't reflect their personalities so I kept getting confused. And I didn't really understand why Rufus/Charlie's was able to eat real food. Isn't he supposed to be a ghost? That being said, I did like the quirkiness of this book. If the characters had been more dev [...]

    3. This is a great MG book about bullying. It's fun, realistic, very much from the kids' perspectives. The pace is good, the characters stay with you long after you put the book down (always a winner). There are some great sub-plots with a mystery at the old house. I love the ending, (sucker for endings)and by an amazing coincidence, just after I read it I caught up with Ishta Mercurio at Chapters and she had just met the author, how cool is that?!!!
