Other Sites about Authors and Illustrators

TeachingBooks.Net is one of the most comprehensive collection of children's and young adult literature information on the web, including links to hundreds of author and illustrator web sites.

Most of their web site is accessible only to TeachingBooks subscribers (including all Wisconsin residents through the BadgerLink statewide online resource library), but a few resources, such as their Author/Illustrator Name Pronunciation Guide, are available to anyone.
