More About Joan Holub

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.

Cats  Nov 16, 2007
Great book for any cat lover

author of "Hobo Finds A Home"
A Love For Cats  May 28, 2002
Joan Holub's Why Do Cats Meow? is an exciting and informative picture book. Whether readers are interested in newborn kittens or any other size cats, this book offers amazing color photographs and illustrations that show answers to the questions that many cat lovers have. Learn the different sizes of the cat family and how many kittens each cat can have. Explore why cats have claws, whiskers and tails, and why they meow, scratch, purr, hiss and hunt. Find out if cats can see in the dark, if they can hear sounds that humans cannot, if they need baths, and how much cats sleep. Discover why cats rub against people, why they go inside and outside so much, and which toys they like to play with. You may be surprised to find out that the one thing cats love and need the most is people, even though they act like they can take care of themselves. The large text and question-answer format target younger readers, but anyone who enjoys learning about cats will fall in love with this book because of the interesting and educational information that describes cats' lives.
American Library Assoc. Pick of the Lists  Aug 2, 2001
This book was chosen as a 2001 American Library Assoc. Pick of the Lists book. The photos and art are exceptionally nice. It's a really good easy-to-read book about cats at my kids' (who are 7 and 8 yrs.) reading level.
