Take a peek at my diary from when I was 10 years old – or bake a pie just like Papa does in The Apple Pie that Papa Baked. This stuff is just for fun.
A Peek at My Diary
When I was ten (back in 1973), my family went to live in the Netherlands for a year. As a good-bye gift, my 5th grade class gave me a diary. I was fond of it immediately – it was so lovely, and though it was small it had a nice heft. This became the first of dozens of diaries and journals that I’ve kept over the years.

Here is my first draft of what became the book Polar Bear Night. I wrote it in pencil, on a spare piece of notebook paper.
