A sprightly text and colorful illustrations follow two creative people-and a talkative dog and cat-through the writing process step by step, from the inspiration for a story to the satisfaction of sharing the book with readers. Eileen Christelow based this instructive picture book on questions children asked during her classroom talks around the country. Simple enough for young children to understand, and with the entertainment value of fiction, What Do Authors Do?" is children's nonfiction at its best."
Eileen Christelow has written and illustrated numerous best-selling picture books including ten popular stories about the Five Little Monkeys, Vote!, and Robins!: How They Grow Up . She lives with her husband in East Dummerston, Vermont. Visit her online at christelow.com and fivelittlemonkeys.com.
