About the Author

A New York Times best-selling children’s book author, Laura Joffe Numeroff is best known for the series based on her book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. First printed in 1985, “Mouse” is now beyond its 60th printing. The fourth book in the series, If You Take a Mouse to the Movies was on the New York Times Children’s Best Seller list for five months- nine weeks at number one.

Laura was born in Brooklyn, New York, and grew up as the youngest of three girls, surrounded by art, music, and books.  She attended Pratt Institute and graduated with a degree in communications and a contract for her first children’s book, Amy for Short, published in 1975 by Macmillan.
