Author & Illustrator

Pat Schories

Pat Schories is the author-illustrator of many early readers for children. Her most recent books include Squeak the Mouse Likes His House, Pie for Chuck, and Pants for Chuck, all “”I Like to Read”” books published by Holiday House. She has also created several wordless books about a dog named JACK. Pat is also the illustrator of the highly acclaimed BISCUIT series of “”I Can Read”” books written by Alyssa Satin Capucilli and published by HarperCollins

Her early readers include simple text with lots of repetition. She makes sure her illustrations mirror the text, which is vital for children learning to read. Pictures become reading cues. Her books are endlessly useful for encouraging careful observation, language development, sequencing, plot development, and ultimately, a love of books and reading. Many of her books have won awards, including Junior Library Guild Selection, Bank Street College of Education’s “”Best Children’s Books of the Year,”” CCBC Choices, select state awards, and starred reviews.
