I have been writing for children since 1980 and am the author of more than 100 books. Recent titles include A Panda’s World, one of a series of twelve books illustrated with my own cut-paper art, Taj Mahal, the story behind this famous monument, and two fiction books, Wiggle and Waggle, an early reader about two hardworking worms, and a tall tale, The Terrible Hodag and the Animal Catchers, winner of the Parents’ Choice Gold Award. My newest book is Global Warming and the Dinosaurs: Fossil Discoveries at the Poles, a look at the dinosaurs that lived in polar regions and how they survived. In addition to writing and illustrating, I do author presentations at schools and teach part-time in the Writer’s Program at UCLA Extension.
