  • 2 stars across 4 books
    Marjorie Dennis Murray is the author of several acclaimed books for children. She grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where at the age of three she was placed in an orphanage and remained there until she was 12. Eventually she attended the University of Pittsburgh, where she graduated with two degrees and high honors.

    After working at several unfulfilling jobs, she discovered that she was an authentic "kid at heart", and that her true calling was to write books for children. She now works (very happily) as an assistant teacher in a preschool. She is very good at tying shoes, mixing paints, and helping children feel comfortable at school.

    Marjorie Dennis Murray is the author of the very well-reviewed and popular picture book, Halloween Night; as well as Hippo Goes Bananas!, a Children's Choice Book of the Year; Don't Wake Up the Bear!, an International Reading Assoc. Choice; and one of Disney Online's Best Books of 2002, Little Wolf and the Moon.

    Brandon Dorman lives in Puyallup, Washington, and is the creator of Pirates of the Sea! and Santa's Stowaway, and the illustrator of Jack Prelutsky's Be Glad Your Nose Is on Your Face, as well as Halloween Night, by Marjorie Dennis Murray.
