Born:  1953
 
Excellent BooksIf You Give a Mouse a Cookie, If You Give a Moose a Muffin, and over two dozen others.  Many have won awards.

From Her Life:  As a young girl, Laura loved her microscope, box of crayons, visiting the library, and Girl Scout cookies! 

Advice for Aspiring Writers:   Laura has a whole list of tips for aspiring authors on her fun website.  I especially love her last piece of advice: "WRITE BECAUSE YOU LOVE WRITING and not because you are looking to make money!"

Me too! I was 18 when I tasted my first Girl Scout cookies, and I've been addicted ever since!

Excellent advice at the end! My kids love her books. I need to check her website out.

Good luck on the rest of the A to Z Challenge! I'm a fellow writer, though I currently write YA.
