The first Marcy story was written to help my own second grader confront issues surrounding disorganization. The second story was created to help her deal with a classroom bully. That story was read by me to her class and received so well that it was followed, by popular demand, by twenty more. The series developed as the wishes, fears and frustrations of my daughter's classmates, (and of several teachers), were reflected by Marcy who handled the problems they inspired.

As my daughter grew, the Marcy stories served to remind her of many personal accomplishments. Then, once my younger daughter entered second grade, she was comforted by the stories until she began to face difficulties not yet handled by Marcy. Suddenly, Marcy had to discover a whole bunch of new adventures both in school and during summer sleep away camp.

This book is geared towards first through third graders and has been piloted to students 7-10 years of age. It is a read aloud "imagination series" and intended to provide an interactive reading experience. Students are encouraged to see Marcy through their own eyes, as Marcy has neither race nor religion of her own.
