Inhaltsangabe:

At the end of the summer, nine-year-old Robert Ott's life is chugging along very smoothly. How quickly life can change!

"Remember me?" the girl said, puffing away her bearlike dog. "I'm Harriet. Most of my friends call me Harri. Do you like to be called Robbie or Bobby?"

Just as he is particular about his room, his desk at school, and his cherished backyard plum tree, Robert Ott is particular about his name. It is clear only minutes into his cousin's yearlong visit that she's out to take over everything.

No turf is sacred. Harri makes herself at home in the Ott household and then in Robert's fourth-grade classroom. But when she moves in on his beloved plum tree, Robert declares war!

The Plum Tree War is one of Bonnie Pryor's funniest, most perceptive novels, in which two quarrelsome fourth-grade cousins discover how much they really have in common.

Über den Autor: Bonnie Pryor thoroughly researched important periods of American history for each of her American Adventures. For Luke on the High Seas, she delved into seafaring in the nineteenth century so that the details of Luke Reed's journey would be accurate. She lives in Gambier, Ohio. In Her Own Words...

"I grew up in Spokane, Washington, the middle child in a family of three girls. Books were a part of my life from as far back as I can remember. I was often in trouble for reading at the wrong time. I would be caught reading under the dining room table when I was supposed to be dusting, or reading under the covers by flashlight late at night-even hiding a novel inside my textbooks at school.

"Not everyone thought I read too much. I remember a school librarian who saved all the new books for me to read first, and on several occasions she gave me presents of books. Perhaps she felt she should because I had read every single thing in her library!

"I was very shy, and, like Robert in The Plum Tree War, I spent a lot of my time hanging from my knees from a favorite plum tree, telling myself stories. Of course since I was raised in the West these stories were usually about wild horses and cowboys, and I was always the heroine who came to the rescue. The stories were long and involved, sometimes going on for days. I was always impatient to get to my tree each day so I could find out what was going to happen next, but I was too lazy to write the stories down.

"I think everyone expected me to become a writer, but it took me twenty years and a gentle nudge from my husband, Robert, to build up the courage to try. In the meantime I moved to Ohio, worked at a variety of jobs, and raised a family. I have four grown children, eight grandchildren, and two daughters still at home-Jenny and Chrissy. Many of my books are loosely based upon incidents in my children's lives, and they often appear as characters, in personality if not by name.

"My family recently moved to the country. When I'm not writing and visiting schools, we're busy building barns and fences and laying out flower beds. In addition, we all take part in caring for the four newcomers to our home: three horses and a bunny!"



Bonnie Pryor's many notable picture books include The Porcupine Mouse, winner of the Irma Simonton Black Award. She lives in Gambier, Ohio.
