About the Author

Sheri Bell-Rehwoldt

One day I declared, "I'm going to write some children's books!" And so I did. A bunch have been activity books for reluctant readers. One of them, a book about pranks, includes the steps for making fake vomit. Hey, if it gets kids reading, I'm proud to have done so!

These are my favorite books I've written: You Think It's Easy Being the Tooth Fairy? , Great World War II Projects You Can Build Yourself, and Sanctuary Rises. Please visit my website to learn more! http://www.sheriabell.com/author/

What's not to love about a big-attitude tooth fairy with high-tech gadgets? (40,000 copies sold!)

Or a hands-on activity book that teaches kids about the American experience during World War II? Researching and writing this book made me so proud to be an American!

Or my newly published middle-grade novel, Sanctuary Rises, about an 11-year-old boy who comes to the realization that his hero, Abraham Lincoln, has it exactly right: "Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be." I'm currently writing the second book in the series!
