Constance C. Greene

A Girl Called Al by Constance C. Greene (1969, Digest Paperback)

Children’s author, Constance C. Greene, died this month at age 96. Growing up, I read and reread her ‘A Girl Called Al,’ ‘Leo the Lioness,’ and ‘Isabelle the Itch’ books multiple times. She belonged in the Judy Blume/ Norma Klein group of authors writing about kids from divorced parents and annoying siblings. Although her titles are somewhat dated now, I have great memories of picking up one of Greene’s books knowing I held a treasure in my hands.
