Mary Bleckwehl grew up in a large farm family in Iowa. She fell in love with books and says the library was her “candy store” because it held goodies between the book covers! Bleckwehl ’s award-winning picture books include Henry you’re late AGAIN! Henry you’re hungry AGAIN? and Claire’s Hair. Look for her five non-fiction titles and debut middle grade books in 2021-22. She's presented to over 90,000 students in schools, libraries, and young writer conferences and is waiting to hear from you-to book a virtual or live event. Her interactive and fun-loving nature will inspire creativity. Bleckwehl, a former teacher, lives in Northfield, Minnesota where the winters are long, the computer is always on, and her monster dog is happily chewing up somebody’s treasure.
