She has won numerous awards, among them the William Allen White Award, the South Carolina Children's Book Award, the Massachusetts Honor Book Award, and the Washington Irving Children's Choice Award, as well as many ALA Notable Book citations. Her own two children were the inspiration for the Oliver and Amanda Pig stories, as well as several others, including Dear Mom, You're Ruining My Life. Many of her other books have grown out of her long-time interest in American history. Her historical picture books include Going West, which was cited as an IRA Teachers' Choice and Across the Wide Dark Sea, selected by the New York Public Library as one of the "100 Titles for Reading and Sharing." She has written historical fiction for older readers as well. Her Bound for Oregon was a Child Study Association Book of the Year, and Cabin on Trouble Creek was nominated for children's Choice awards in eight states. Ms. Van Leeuwen now lives in another small town north of New York City with her husband, Bruce Gavril. She has two grown children, David and Elizabeth, and a young grandchild, who will surely inspire more stories.
Jean Van Leeuwen currently resides in Chappaqua, in the state of New York.
Reviews - What do customers think about The Great Cheese Conspiracy (UNABRIDGED)?
Endearing Rodent Epic Jul 13, 2000
Even though the story is written as a children's novel, readers of any age will find plenty to love with the three main characters. In the vein of such enjoyable trios as the Three Stooges and Alvin and the Chipmunks, the mice heros (or hoodlums) of this story each flash their personalities in conversation and proceed through the adventurous plotline with their own specific style. The writing is smooth, the moused-sized inventions humorous and the story fluid enough that you might just have to sit down and read it all at once. But don't worry about the time. It is, after all, just a children's book.

Great Read-Aloud Fun! Jun 24, 1998
My mom used to read this book to me, and I loved it. She is a teacher (6th grade) and also works with a daycare (K-5th grades). She has read this book to many classes of children over the years, and it is consistently enjoyed.
The book is full of humor, and is very easy to imagine happening in your mind. That's what makes it so great. Plus it's good quality reading--and very appropriate for children.
