Arabba Gah Zee, Marissa and Me! by Ruth Rosner

Published by Albert Whitman & Company in 1987.

This is a great book about a friendship between two girls.  I think their antics reminded me of playing with my own friends at the time. Marissa and Laura pretend spies are following them, put on a rock show for their moms, dance ballet, play pirates, and protect each other from robots.  Sometimes they get mad at each other, but quickly make up after having some cool-off time alone.

Unfortunately, I couldn't find much information about the author. It appears she wrote a few books around this time period and hasn't had anything published since.  It's too bad because her words and illustrations are so fun.
