Today we celebrate the birthday of author extraordinaire, Megan McDonald!
Megan grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and was the youngest of 5 girls. She had to work to make herself heard! That voice comes through loud and clear in the Judy Moody books. Judy's little brother, Stink, also has a series of books written about him. These beginning chapter books are perfect for those children who are transitioning from beginning readers to longer chapter books. With silly illustrations and humorous happenings, these books are favorites of children in the primary grades.
Megan also wrote the Sisters Club series as well as stories about Julie, an American Girl. She also wrote several picture books, sharing a story about a dog who won't stop eating shoes, one that shows what happens when a hen shares gossip, and another about puppets figuring out what to to when the lights go out at the library. These are great for sharing and reading aloud with children of all ages!
