Sara Pennypacker
By: Jenn Hendrickson Why I chose this author: After reading a Clementine book for class, I fell in love with Pennypacker's writing style
Unique and entertaining
Creates quirky characters

Wanted to read the rest of the series

Wanted to know where her ideas came from for her characters

Loved the simplicity of the illustrations in the Clementine series, that matched the description so well Biography Born in a small town in Massachusetts

Lives in Cape Cod, MA

As a child, she was very shy, so she read and made up stories as well as drew and painted mosaics

First, she was a water color painter and had her own gallery

When she had her two children, she fell in love with children's books

Since 1990, she has been creating books for kids and she knows she'll do it for the rest of her life Hobbies Reading
Going to the beach
Riding horses
Obsessed with baseball, wanted to play for the major league when she was a child and still does to this day
Images of Author Interesting Facts How she developed her characters: Stuart:
Based off of her nephew
Based off her two children, Clementine is her two children combined into one to make this main character Favorite Literary Line: The first line from Charlotte's Web: "Where is Papa going with that ax?" asked Fern as she helped her mother set the table for breakfast."
Now, how could anyone not read that book after an opening like that? We like Fern already; there's a mystery; and a big, shiny ax... gulp! Genre, Subjects, and Themes Themes: Subjects: Genres: Fantasy

write a story about where you want to visit in the world

Read Clementine as a read aloud-- much funnier and the students can hear how the books are meant to be read, will encourage them to read the series on their own
Create a friend of the week book for each student in the class

Sparrow Girl is about China, could also use this for social studies Related Websites http://www.sarapennypacker.com/index.htm How to become a good writer
