Mahnaz Dar of the School Library Journal says that, “Author Kate DiCamillo has always gotten kids reading, whether by writing mesmerizing stories, like the Newbery-winning The Tale of Despereaux (2003) and Flora & Ulysses (2013, both Candlewick), or by advocating for the importance of literacy” (Dar). This quote shows how when children recognize authors that have written some of their favorite books, the author’s credibility increases in the child’s mind, causing them to be more encouraged to read books written by the same author. Kate DiCamillo has won numerous awards, proving what a beloved, talented author she is, such as 2014 Newbery Medal or 2014 E.B. White Read Aloud Award, and 22 more awards for Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures alone. The fact that she has won such a large amount of awards for her literature shows how much her readers enjoy her books along with what a respected author she is, which can have the power to influence kids to read Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures.
Better Reading claims that there are four main reasons why children favor reading book series: familiarity, accomplishment, reading momentum, and collectability.

Furthermore, children feel accomplished after completing many novels because they are capable of reading more after developing literacy skills. “A Series of Unfortunate Events” is a very popular series, and these four justifications make it much more enjoyable. Linda Bindner from Library Journal compliments Lemony Snicket by saying that his “energetic blend of humor, dramatic irony, and literary flair makes it all perfectly believable.
