Lois Lowry is arguably one of the America's most famous and multitalented children's book writer. She has penned down in a range of imaginary forms, from the World War II anecdotes Number the Stars to the vivacious happenings of Anastasia Krupnik to the sensational The Giver. An introvert and shy child, Lowry was fond of reading. She was hardly 8 or 9 years old when she made up her mind that she wants to become a writer. It was because her father was associated with armed forces; she was able to spend her childhood at different places. For few years she was in Japan and also did her schooling from there but graduated from a High School in New York City.
Lowry printed her maiden novel titled A Summer to Die in 1977. This novel was based on occurrences happened around her. A couple of years later, she printed another novel titled Autumn Street and this novel too like her previous novel was inspired by her own experience.
She kept scaling new highs with her iconic novel titled Number the Stars. The book traverses the Nazi takeover of the European nation Denmark during the Second World War. After a gap of almost Four years, she printed her most acclaimed novel titled The Giver. The tale takes the reader to a community in future where no poverty exists and where there's no war and every human lives are tightly administered.
Lowry launched yet another highly successful children's book series titled Gooney Bird Greene. Besides writing, Lowry is a capable photographer as well and some of her work has been utilised to demonstrate the covers of her books, including Number the Stars and The Giver.
