I'm the author of many books for young readers, including The One and Only Ivan, winner of the 2013 Newbery Medal, Crenshaw, Home of the Brave, wishtree, the Roscoe Riley Rules series, Ivan: The Remarkable True Story of the Shopping Mall Gorilla, The Buffalo Storm, and with my husband, Michael Grant, the Animorphs series, which has sold over 35 million copies worldwide.
Also a few other books I'd prefer to forget.
I have one husband, two children, and three pets, and live in northern California.
From Newbery Medalist and bestselling author Katherine Applegate, a sweet book of encouragement, filled with humor and insight into the effort behind any meaningful accomplishment in life. A perfect gift for baby shower, birthday, or graduation.
