Jane Yolen

  • 5 stars across 70 books

    Jane Yolen has written more than two hundred books for children and adults and is the winner of many prestigious awards in the US, including the Caldecott Medal.


    Mark Teague's debut picture book, `The Trouble with the Johnsons', earned him a feature in Publisher's Weekly as one of eleven prominent new authors of 1989. Although he developed his writing and painting talents without formal training, he has collaborated with critically acclaimed authors Audrey Wood, Cynthia Rylant and Jane Yolen.


    He currently lives in Coxsackie, New York, with his wife, Laura, and their two daughters, Lily and Ava.
