About the Author: Set 2


image

Here are fascinating biographies of writers of books that America's children love to read. Each book includes an interview with the author, as well as excerpts and illustrations from the authors' published works. Kids will read firsthand accounts of where authors get their inspirations, what messages they hope to impart to their audiences and what it's like to be a professional writer. This series is the perfect nonfiction counterpart to some of the best fiction for children. Titles feature many rare childhood photographs of the authors.
