Barbara Kerley

Barbara Kerley is an award-winning author of books for kids. Her middle-grade novel, FOLLOWING BAXTER, is a fun adventure story featuring two funny kids, an eccentric scientist, and a big shaggy dog. In a review of FOLLOWING BAXTER, Booklist wrote: “Kerley has written a dog book like no other. Jordie is a resourceful, likable, smart girl who believes equally in science and magic....Readers will want more adventures with these kooky characters.”

Her other titles include TIGERS AND TEA WITH TOPPY, a Junior Library Guild selection; THE DINOSAURS OF WATERHOUSE HAWKINS, a Caldecott Honor Book; WHAT TO DO ABOUT ALICE?, a Boston-Globe-Horn Book Honor Book; and A HOME FOR MR. EMERSON, an Oregon Spirit Book award winner.
