Authors and Illustrators Online

Page history last edited by Terry Doherty 12 years, 11 months ago

Just like many of us, authors and illustrators have websites and/or blogs. These virtual portals can add to a child's experience with a book and bring it to life in new ways. Although each site varies, you are likely to find games or activities related to a book or series; information about author/illustrator programs or an email address for writing to an author; biographical information about the author/illustrator; and background information about the book itself.


Also visit our Online Fun and Games page to find author/illustrator information by book or series title.
