You don't need a reason to be happy.”
― Louis Sachar, Sideways Stories From Wayside School

“I'm not saying it's going to be easy. Nothing in life is easy. But that's no reason to give up. You'll be surprised what you can accomplish if you set your mind to it. After all, you only have one life, so you should try to make the most of it.”
Louis Sachar, from Holes

"Read, find out what you like to read, and try to figure out what it is that makes you like. And you have to rewrite. My first draft of anything I write is really awful."
Louis Sachar's advice to others Quotations Louis Sachar was born on March 20, 1954 in East Meadow, New York. His father's name is Robert and his mother's name is Ruth.

Biography What I noticed about his writing and writing style
Louis Sachar keeps his writing simple and uses some big vocabulary. He avoids adverbs in his stories and uses repetition. Louis Sachar often takes the reader back in time using a flashback.

He tells a new storyline and introduces new characters, He makes the reader ask many questions.

He uses very short sentences, this is very unusual yet it is effective. This makes the book much faster and quicker to read. It also makes the reader ask questions to himself and makes him want to quickly move on to the next page and never stop reading. Awards
