I’m children’s author Laura Purdie Salas! I write books for thoughtful and bold readers, and I’m happy you’re here! My various books include science, poetry, verse, information, and imagination. Here are some of my book covers. I wrote these books, and a variety of wonderfully talented artists illustrated thems. (If you hover the cursor over a picture, it will pause it. For many of the slides, if you click on one, it will lead to more info on my site.) Feel free to explore the links in the menu above and the sidebar to the right to learn more about me and my writing life. Thanks!
