Synopsis

Who are today's must-know children's authors and illustrators? McElmeel's ready reference introduces you to some of the hottest new names in children's literature, and reacquaints you with established authors and illustrators who are just now becoming recognized for their contributions to the field. You'll find engaging biographical sketches, photos, selected bibliographies, and lists of resources for 45 authors and illustrators, including Laurie Halse Anderson, Haemi Balgassi, Toni Buzzeo, David Diaz, Kate DiCamillo, Linda Sue Park, Chris Soentpiet, Anastasia Suen, Simms Taback, and many more. This all-new new volume is a current and affordable update to the Popular Authors Series. Students will enjoy using it as a resource for reports and research papers, and librarians will find it a handy reference and collection development tool. A great addition to the elementary school library and to the children's room at the public library. Grades K-6
