Children's Authors

November is packed with literary celebrations (November 13-19 is Children's Book Week), so why not honor the written word all month long? If you need a place to start, check out these children's authors -- they're among the best in the biz.

Contemporary Favorites

  • K. A. Applegate
    Find everything Applegate -- and "Animorphs" -- at Scholastic's official site.

  • Ann M. Martin
    This site, another official one from Scholastic, offers weekly updates from the author plus the latest on her three series: "The Babysitters Club," "Babysitters Club: Friends Forever" and "California Diaries."

  • J. K. Rowling
    At this official site, read an interview with Rowling and find out more about the "Harry Potter" phenomenon.

  • R. L. Stine
    Goosebumps on the Web is the official, comprehensive site to the bestselling children's series in history.




Award-winners

  • Judy Blume
    Judy Blume's Home Base is packed with info -- from biographical data and a book list to writing tips and links to other Judy Blume sites. (Some of her award-winning titles include "Blubber," "Tiger Eyes" and "Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret.")

  • Beverly Cleary
    This site offers games, character information and a neighborhood map. (Cleary's "Dear Mr. Henshaw" won the Newbery Medal in 1984.)

  • Madeleine L'Engle
    At the Madeleine L'Engle WWW Resource, which is not an official site, you'll find archives of articles and interviews, plus L'Engle's speaking schedule, book summaries and reviews. (L'Engle's book "A Wrinkle in Time" won the Newbery Medal in 1963.)

All-time Greats

  • C.S. Lewis
    The C.S. Lewis Foundation offers a detailed chronology of the author's life plus an online bookstore (so you can pick up the Chronicles of Narnia).

  • Worth a look is Seussville, which contains games, contests and info about Seuss-related events.

  • Shel Silverstein
    Celebrate the life and works of this amazing writer ("The Giving Tree") and poet ("Where the Sidewalk Ends"), who died of a heart attack on May 10, 1999.
