Judy Sierra

Judy Sierra has been writing laugh-out-loud picture books for 25 years. Besides inducing giggles, Judy's books expand children's vocabularies, extol the virtues of kindness, perseverance, and friendship, and celebrate the joy of a life filled with books. Illustrators such as Marc Brown, Melissa Sweet, J. Otto Seibold, and Will Hillenbrand have expanded her work's humor exponentially, creating read-aloud classics like Wild About Books, Sleepy Little Alphabet, Counting Crocodiles, and Antarctic Antics. Her books have won many awards including the Aesop Award from the American Foilklore Society, the E.B. White Read-Aloud Award from the Association of Booksellers for Children, Notable Book citations from the American Library Association, and Children's Choice Awards from the Center for Children's Books, Bank Street College of Education, and from many of the fifty states. Two of her books, Wild About Books and Antarctic Antics, were New York Times Picture Book Bestsellers. Ms Sierra is also a noted folklorist, and has compiled anthologies of Cinderella tales, children's games, and children's folktales from around the world. She lives in Oregon with her husband Bob and their library-card-carrying poodle, Keiko. Visit her at www.judysierrabooks.com
