Jennifer Holm

Jennifer Holm has always loved reading. She recalls this: “One of our neighbors said that his clearest memory of me as a child was watching me rake the lawn one-handed while I read a book with the other!” Holm has co-authored a series of graphic novels featuring a mouse (Babymouse) and an amoeba (Squish) and created a feline version of James Bond (The Stink Files). She has also published several Newbery Honor-winning historical fiction novels for middle grade readers inspired by stories from her own family.
