About the Author

Moira Rose Donohue

I began writing for children after my defection from the practice of banking law. I have published three true animal chapter books with National Geographic Kids, KANGAROO TO THE RESCUE, PARROT GENIUS, and DOG ON A BIKE (2017) and another one about dolphins is one the way. Also just released in 2017 is THE INVASION OF NORMANDY with North Star Editions. And coming soon, a National Geographic LITTLE KIDS FIRST BIG BOOK OF THE RAIN FOREST. I published two series of biographies for the educational market with State Standards Publishing, Inc.; a biography about Lyndon Johnson with ABDO, which received a starred review from Booklist in 2016 and two books about animated punctuation marks, ALFIE THE APOSTROPHE and PENNY AND THE PUNCTUATION BEE, both with Albert Whitman. I'm originally from New York City, but now divide my time between Northern Virginia and St. Petersburg, FL.

I love hockey, tap dancing, old movies, and dogs. And yes, I love punctuation that much! Please visit my website at www.moirarosedonohue.net for more information about my books and my school visits.
