Author, Author!

In honor of Children's Book Week, let's take a look at the webpages of some well-loved authors. Dav Pilkey (of Captain Underpants fame) has a fun one - Dav Pilkey's Extra-Crunchy Website O' Fun. (The book pictured is his "book of the month.")

Author/illustrator Jan Brett has some great activities and projects, including a Thanksgiving card on her page.

Seussville is another fun site.

Chris Van Allsburg's site has a scavenger hunt and lots of other activities.

Enjoy the fabulous illustrations of Caldecott Award winner's page, David Wiesner - The Art of Visual Storytelling.

Redwall fans will want to visit Brian Jacques' page. Shel Silverstein fans can hear him reading his poems here.

You can find many more authors' websites on Great Web Sites for Kids, recommended by the American Library Association.
