Lisa Papp

Lisa Papp grew up telling stories. With a notebook full of sketches, her early tales featured her cat, stuffed animals, and other nature-y things. Today, Lisa is still making up stories and painting pictures, only now, they fill the pages of children’s books. She has received awards for both her writing and illustration, and her two books Madeline Finn and the Library Dog and Madeline Finn and the Shelter Dog have also received many awards, including the 2017 Children’s Book Council Children’s Choice Book of the Year Award, Parents’ Choice Recommended Awards, and the Nebraska Library Association’s Golden Sower Award. Lisa lives in Pennsylvania, with her husband, Robert, also an artist, and three wildly creative cats—to whom she does read. visit her website at www.lisapapp.com
