Sara Pennypacker, author of the Clementine books, was a painter before becoming a writer and has two absolutely fabulous children who are grown now. She has written several books, including Stewart's Cape and Stewart Goes to School, both illustrated by Martin Matje, and Dumbstruck.

Sara Pennypacker recommends
The Problem with the Puddles (2009)
Kate Feiffer
"The Problem with the Puddles is a blast from first page to last. My only complaint is that I didn't write it!"
The Halo Effect (2017)
Anne D Leclaire
"Like the series of paintings at its core, The Halo Effect is the story of families torn and reborn, a meditation on duality, and a masterwork lit by compassion. I'm telling everyone I know about this book."
Maybe Maybe Marisol Rainey (2021)
(Maybe Marisol, book 1)
Erin Entrada Kelly
"Hilarious and heart-melting."
