  • Mary Casanova

    Mary Casanova is an award winning children s author of novels and picture books Many of her books stem from her life on the Minnesota Canadian border yet some of her stories have taken her as far away as France, Norway, and Belize for research Whatever the setting for her books, Casanova writes stories that matter and stories that kids can t put down.Her book awards include American Library Association Notable, Aesop Accolades by the American Folklore Society, Parents Choice Gold Award, Booklist Editor Choice, and two Minnesota Book Awards Her books frequently land on state children s choice book master lists across the country The greatest reward for me, Casanova states, is when a young reader tells me she or he loves one of my books For me, it s all about communicating writer to reader through a character and story Casanova grew up in a family of ten children in St Paul, Minnesota In a bustling camp like atmosphere, Casanova found that writing became her voice Words are my paintbrush, she explains, my way of exploring the world around me Now, with 19 books published and many under contract and forthcoming, she divides her time between writing and traveling Nationally and internationally, at schools and conferences, Casanova shares her love of writing and reading with children and adults.Her newest novel, The Klipfish Code, makes use of Mary s on site research in Norway The story explores an important facet of Norwegian history through the experiences of Marit, a 12 year old Norwegian girl who finds a way to fight against the 5 year Nazi occupation of Norway Marit and her brother Lars are separated from their parents who are working for the Resistance and sent to live on an island with their gruff grandfather and school teacher aunt During the course of the story, Marit s aunt is one of the Norwegian school teachers that gets sent to a concentration camp for refusing to integrate Nazi propaganda into her classroom With potential danger waiting every turn, Marit finds a way to help the Resistance and eventually reunite her family.Mary s series, Dog Watch Simon and Schuster is based on her northern Minnesota village where dogs are allowed to roam free as long as they don t get in trouble If they get in trouble, they earn a sticker on their page at the village clerk s office too many stickers and a trouble making dog must remain at home I never know where the next story will come from It s a delight when the stories come right from this corner of the world I call home She makes her home in a 100 year old house on Rainy Lake with her husband, Charles, and their three above average dogs and spends free time with their horses, Jay and Midnight.

  • A quick read at only 129 pages, I actually got this novel a signed copy, at that from my sixth grade reading teacher and figured it was about time to read it, nearly six years later Strangely political, religious, and mature for its targeted age group, I found myself liking this book a lot than I expected It definitely touched on several topics I never expected to see in middle grade novel the prospect all evil, all monsters are human, the unfairness and lack of opportunities our lives may bind [...]


  • This book was great a wonderful story on a child born on Christmas eve who has a curse The older brother does all he can for his brother so he may survive Villagers are frightened of this baby and want him gone How far will the older brother go to protect his little brother.


  • Twelve year old Marius has been burdened with the care of his little brother, Jean Pierre, ever since their mother died in childbirth But Jean Pierre was born on Christmas Eve and the villagers believe that he carries the mark of the loup garou the werewolf With the longest night of the year approaching and the villagers thirsting for heretic blood, will Marius be able to protect his little brother from the clutches of the Catholic Church POSITIVE The story is short and reasonably entertaining I [...]


  • I have to admit that this was a book I bought under the excuse of maybe my nephew will grow into this when really what I meant was, Ooh, a kids book with potential werewolf stuff Mine In actuality, this is a historically plausible book set during the birth of Protestantism and Calvinism and Lutherism in a part of France where such thought left one branded a heretic and burned alive It is a darkly superstitious tale, and one where the main character s brother was born on Christmas Eve, and theref [...]


  • I came across this book on a themed booklist somewhere, possibly either a historical fiction list or a werewolf list I had thought it sounded interesting due to the werewolf angle, but now that I ve read it, I think I must have found it on a historical fiction list There are no actual werewolves in this short book The story is set in a somewhat obscure period of history France during the beginnings of Protestantism Superstitions about werewolves are all over this book, but no actual werewolves s [...]


  • I really enjoyed this book The storyline, characters, and events swept me up and made this part of history come all the alive for me The book is told through first person, a twelve year old boy named Marius and this book would be great for any teacher encouraging boys to read His dying mother tells him to take care of his younger brother, Jean Pierre, born with bad luck on Christmas Eve, and when Jean Pierre is six years old, France is in turmoil and wanting to put to death anyone who speaks ou [...]


  • I am on the fence about this book and had to with liked it in the end Its an odd little historical fiction both too old and too young for its target age group The writing is very you but the content is old coupled with a bibliography and an author s note about the historical period I definitely enjoyed the historical work put into the book but am on the fence about the story itself.


  • Great book for reluctant middle school readers This would be recommended for students stuck in only reading limited genres.


  • Lots going on in this one Great historical detail that will be perfect for our new social studies standards Now if I could just get the kids to read historical fiction


  • A Youth s book about France in the 1600 s where people believed in werewolves and heretics Marius, Jean Pierre, their father and uncle Gabriel Superstition and religious ferver Good book.


  • France, 1565 Persecution of the Huguenots is intensified for one family when one of them is suspected of being a werewolf.
