Patricia and Fredrick McKissack

Authors Kids Love

Series: Authors Kids Love

By Michelle Parker-Rock

Patricia and Fredrick McKissack started out to write just one book for children. But over the last thirty years, they have written more than one hundred books—nonfiction, picture books, novels, and more. Learn how they got started, where they get their ideas, and what they have to say to kids who want to be writers. Filled with childhood photos, this biography is based on a personal interview with Patricia and Fredrick McKissack.

The Horn Book Guide, Spring 2009

"This wife-husband author team is eminently worthy of inclusion in Enslow’s 'Authors Kids Love' series . . . The most rewarding part of the book shares the McKissacks’ writing process . . . This is a valuable book that should inspire young readers and writers."
