How to Teach a Slug to Read

Welcome!

My name is Susan Pearson, and I am the author of more than thirty books for children, including picture books, chapter books, and collections of verse.  Iím also a childrenís book editor.

Iíve always felt incredibly lucky: I get to spend my days doing what I love to doówriting and editing books for kids.  It can be hard work.  Sometimes Iím stumped for the right word or phrase.  Sometimes Iím getting tangled in a plot.  But even at those times, I love my job. 

Often I feel like a detectiveóhunting for just the right word to use in a poem, finding the clues to solve a mystery, figuring out whatís going to happen next in a story. 

Other times Iím like a gardeneróplanting the seed of a story and watching it grow.  Sometimes it grows in the wrong direction or way too looooooong and I have to prune it back, but itís a wonderful feeling when Iíve finally got it growing straight and it blooms!

So welcome to my web site!  I hope youíll like my books as much as Iíve liked making them.
