In The Author's Own Words...
I graduated from college in Texas with a fine arts degree, and then freelanced as an art director at a graphic design firm for eight years. I dreamed of working in children's books, so I moved to New York City and became associate art director in Scholastic trade books, where I designed books for children and worked with editors and illustrators. It was a great job.
I illustrated my first published children's book in 1992 and soon began illustrating full time. I began completing manuscripts and mailing them out to publishers in the early 1990s. In 1996, I sold my first two manuscripts -- Boo Who? A Spooky Lift-the-Flap Book (Scholastic) and Pen Pals (Grosset & Dunlap). Yippee!
Now I write full time and have written and/or illustrated over 130 children's books. Creating books that entertain, inform, and interest children (and me) is a fabulous job that I truly love.
Joan Holub currently resides in Seattle, in the state of Washington.

Very cute book Dec 10, 2007
Very cute. My son and I read the book together for Chanukah. He enjoyed turning the flaps to see what happened next. Good preschooler story. Not too descriptive though, if you want more of a descriptive Chanukah story...this isn't the one. Very basic.
