As a child hiding under the covers to read book after book, Lisa Lowe Stauffer secretly longed to write fiction herself. She also wanted a pet monkey. 

With the publication of TWO BY TWO (Zonderkidz, 2018), both wishes have come true, although the pet monkey(s) are two small puppets who claim the book as their own. Check #monkeys2 on Twitter to see their adventures.

Lisa lives in Roswell, Georgia. When she's not busy opening the door to let her cats in or out, in or out, in or out, she can be found writing picture books, middle grade, and young adult novels.

Presentation Description:
My current book, TWO BY TWO, is most suited to story time and activities for younger children, including those in pre-K through Kindergarten programs. 

Because it's  a Noah's Ark retelling, my presentation can be customized to add a Biblical approach for church-based schools. 

However, my usual presentation is all about the monkeys and having fun with your friends.
