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.
Reviews - What do customers think about Why Do Dogs Bark? (Easy-to-Read, Puffin)?
A great book to give to your kids Jan 5, 2005
Let's face it. Most kids like and/or own dogs. They're going to want a book about dogs! This is the one to give them. This book explains simple but interesting things on dogs, and also provides some fun facts and training tips.
The easy reading and pronounciation guides are a great way to get kids into reading. Plus, the book has a cute, touching ending that could possibly turn kids who don't care that much for dogs into kids that like dogs.
For an easy-reader book, Why Do Dogs Bark isn't exactly short. This is great, as it can make its young readers rise to the challenge of steadily starting to read longer and longer books.
Overall, adults, teens, and older children should already know everything the book says, and not enjoy it much, but this is a really great book on dogs to give to younger children. And there's one on cats, too!
