Street magic performer. Hog-calling champion. Award-winning ice sculptor. These are all things Tara Lazar has never been. Instead, she writes quirky, humorous picture books featuring magical places that everyone will want to visit.
Her debut, The Monstore, released in June 2013, with I Thought This Was a Bear Book and Little Red Gliding Hood following in Fall 2015. Normal Norman made his entrance in March 2016 and you can stay up Way Past Bedtime in Fall 2016. If you know the answer to “”Why was 6 afraid of 7?”” then you’ll love her book 7 Ate 9, coming from Disney*Hyperion in 2017.
Tara is a member of the Rutgers University Council on Children’s Literature. She lives in Basking Ridge, New Jersey, with her husband, two daughters and 2,749 stuffed animals.
