More About the Author
Molly Coxe's Early Readers have sold over 1.8 million copies. She is currently creating a new series of Early Readers for BraveMouse Books. "I love the challenge of telling a fresh, surprising story in a few words," says Molly. "I'm currently working on a "Short Vowel Adventure" featuring each of the short vowel sounds (a,e i,o u). Each story will be published in bilingual editions as well. The first Arabic, Spanish, Hindi, Portugese, French, German, Mandarin, and Italian bilingual editions will be available as ebooks in early 2014."
Molly's last picture book, Benjamin and Bumper to the Rescue, won the 2011 Nautilus Award for Best Picture Book of the Year. The Nautilus Awards recognize "Books and Audio Books that promote spiritual growth, conscious living & positive social change, while at the same time they stimulate the "imagination" and offer the reader "new possibilities" for a better life and a better world."
Molly has taught preschool, in addition to writing and illustrating stories for young children. She graduated from Princeton University with a degree in English literature. Her favorite writers are Charles Dickens and Jane Austen. Her favorite children's book is Charlotte's Web, and her favorite children's movie is Babe the Pig.
