Are Autobiographies True?

Mrs. Pearson's third grade class at Warrens Elementary in Warrens, Wisconsin, wrote letters.

Jenna: My teacher, Mrs. Pearson, has been reading the 26 Fairmont Avenue series to us. I like them a lot. I am suripised that your autobiographies are true. I felt like you were right in my classroom at Warrens Elementary in Wisconsin.

Tomie: Thank you, Jenna. Autobiographies, by definition, are true stories.

Many students: Is Buddy still mean to you?

Tomie: My brother and I never got along very well while he lived. He died many years ago.
