Barbara Gregorich is the author Waltur Buys a Pig in a Poke and Waltur Paints Himself into a Corner (Houghton Mifflin), early readers featuring Waltur, a bear who learns folk wisdom as expressed in idioms and proverbs — but only after humorous results. She is the author of numerous early readers and workbooks published by School Zone Publishing, as well as the author of Workman’s Brain Quest Workbook Grade 4. Her most recent book, Jack and Larry: Jack Graney and Larry, the Cleveland Baseball Dog, is nonfiction told in free verse, for ages 10-up.
Her adult fiction includes She's on First, a well-received mainstream novel about a woman major league baseball player, and Sound Proof, a mystery featuring Frank Dragovic, Chicago Croatian private detective. Her nonfiction work, Women at Play: The Story of Women in Baseball (Harcourt Brace), won the SABR-Macmillan award for best baseball research of the year, and her recently published Research Notes for Women at Play, Vol. 1, is used by high school and college teachers who teach research and writing the research paper.
