|Lori Taylor here! I'm a Michigan artist, author
and illustrator and I've been writing, drawing and
making books and art for children ever since I could
hold a pencil.
I was inspired by lots of authors and illustrators, from
Jean Craighead George to Beatrix Potter and Michigan's
own artist and author, Gwen Frostic. My favorite books
growing up were: Paddington Bear, The Bobbsey
Twins, The Swiss Family Robinson, fairy tales, myths
I remember when I got my first library card. I was nine
years old. It opened up a whole new world for me!
I read and drew all the time on the five acres of
Clarkston woods that I grew up in.
My HOLLY WILD book series highlights Michigan's
habitat, flora and fauna, native legends and scary myths
with a pinch of science and SCADS of art. All of these
things and more tell the complete tale of each place.
One of the best part about this series is that it gets me
up, out and into Michigan parks, woods, waters,
trails and other fun wild places.
So come join me and HOLLY WILD's GeEK
(Geo-Explorer Kids)Team as we explore Michigan!
