- Judy Sierra has been writing laugh-out-loud picture books for 25 years, collaborating with illustrators including Marc Brown, Melissa Sweet, J. Otto Siebold, and Stephen Gammell to produce bestsellers like Wild About Books, Sleepy Little Alphabet, Mind Your Manners B.B. Wolf, and The Secret Science Project that Almost Ate the School.
Judy's books tickle kids' funny bones, stretch their vocabularies, and celebrate kindness, perseverance, friendship, and the joys of reading.
"I try to create stories and rhymes that will captivate children ages four to eight, and draw them further into the world of books," she explains. "And because picture books are shared across generations, I always add a bit of humor and word play aimed at adults. I'm especially pleased when an online reviewer says they enjoy reading my books aloud again and again."
Judy Sierra lives in Portland, Oregon, with her husband and their library-card-carrying poodle, Keiko.
