When she was a child, she had a bout with polio, which paralyzed her from the neck down for nine months.

Box 303, Wilkeson, WA 98396 | |Picture: |[pic] | |Connection to the Book: |Peg Kehret recently told Contemporary Authors that she enjoys writing books that are entertaining and share her values at the same time. A recurring theme | | |she uses is that violence is never a solution and the characters in her books will use their brains to get out of trouble instead of a weapon. This is | | |evident in Abduction! when Bonnie and Matt must get away from their abductor by using a baseball. She is an animal lover and will use animals in her | | |stories. Again, the family dog, Pookie, is taken as a lure to abduct Matt. She is also a baseball fan and in the story, Bonnie finds Matt at a Mariner’s | | |baseball game. | |Other books by this...
