Since the first volume was published in 1934, the Junior Authors & Illustrators series has been a welcome and essential source of information. Its biographical profiles have introduced generations of young readers to the authors and artists who create the books they know and love. Children and young adults, parents and educators, as well as aspiring children's book writers and illustrators, will also appreciate the valuable insights presented.

The latest volume in this indispensable series covers over 180 award-winning authors and illustrators who represent the rich variety and multicultural nature of children's literature today. Included are Caldecott Honor Book illustrators Bryan Collier and Mo Willems; Newbery Medalists Cynthia Kadohata and Lynne Rae Perkins; popular fantasy creators Cornelia Funke and Rick Riordan; and cultural icons who have written critically acclaimed children's books, such as Julie Andrews and Holly Hobbie. Authors for teens are also well represented in profiles of Printz Award winners David Almond and Meg Rosoff and Printz Honor book recipients Laurie Halse Anderson, Sonya Hartnett, and Markus Zusak.

Retrospective profiles in this volume include comprehensive overviews of the careers of some of children and young adult literature's greatest 20th century stars - Roald Dahl, Astrid Lindgren, and Dr. Seuss, among them - as well as those who continue to grow in their careers-such as Patricia Reilly Giff and Jane Yolen.
