The wacky fun continues as a young boy awakens to find a half-head of hair. After chugging down his glass of milk that's two-thirds gooey paste, he and his friend are off to camp for a day of fraction fun and an out-of-this world soccer game. The first two books in the series, One Odd Day and My Even Day, won a Learning Magazine's 2008 Teachers' Choice Award for Children's Books. As with the series' other books, the imaginative illustrations are sure to please young readers as they scour the pages for countless oddities hidden in the art!

“I simply love My Half Day! There that’s the review. It’s that simple. Fun for families to read, but also a great addition to libraries and schools. Teachers, check this out!” - Armchair Interviews
“This is a must have for the elementary school library. For kids who are just learning fractions or are struggling with them, this would be a handy book to have. It's much more fun than flashcards.” - The Reading Tub
“Doris Fisher and Dani Sneed have written another wonderful book that makes math FUN for children. Bravo to the authors and illustrator for creating a big, colorful book about a topic that isn’t always so entertaining.” - Carmen Bredeson, Award-winning author of 80 nonfiction books for young readers
Karen Lee has quite a humorous imagination, and it shows in her illustrations forOne Odd Day, My Even Dayand My Half Day. These books are full of odd (and even) hidden items that children will love to find. Karen has also written and illustrated ABC Safari. Each of her illustrations begins with thoughtful design and drawing. The paintings are finished with watercolor on illustration board. Karen majored in illustration at the Columbus (OH) College of Art and Design. She began her career as a storyboard artist and editorial illustrator but it wasn't until she had children of her own that she discovered her true artistic passion: children's illustration. Karen's ABC Safari was the runner up for the 2005 SCBWI Don Freeman Grant. She is also the recipient of the 2004 SCBWI Magazine Merit Award for Illustration for her wok in Highlights For Children. She and her husband, also an illustrator, are raising their family outside of Raleigh, NC. Karen's children join her on many research trips to museums, zoos and aquariums-a tough job, but someone has to do it!

Dani Sneed (One Odd Day, My Even Day and My Half Day) is a mother of three, full-time engineer, part-time writer and former substitute teacher. While teaching, Dani enjoyed explaining math in silly, but memorable, ways. Oddly enough, she was inspired to co-author One Odd Day based on a conversation she had with an elementary school librarian. My Even Day is a natural follow on to that quite odd book and there may even be a fraction of a book in the future! Dani has written several articles for Highlights for Children and five merit badge books for Boy Scouts of America including Chemistry, Environmental Science, and Geology, and is working on more. She has two co-authored bilingual books; Confetti Eggs / Cascarones and Punched Paper / Papel Picado. Dani lives in the suburbs of Houston with her family which includes a dog, Muffin and a cat, Cupcake. They are currently looking for a pet to name Biscuit. School Visit Info.
