Laurel Decher

About the Author

The joys we discover early can turn into life-long fascinations. That's why my books challenge 9-to-12-year-old readers to open all the doors in their lives! Until we reach retirement age, most of us will never again have a window of time, energy, and brain power like this. Seven Kingdoms Fairy Tales are about enjoying reading superpowers, imagining delightfully silly places, and discovering life's possibilities. Read the books in any order. :) Laurel Decher lives on the outskirts of a mid-sized city in Germany, between a medieval chapel on the St. James' Way and a boundary marker tree carved with a scary face. It's a little surprising, since she expected to live in Vermont for the rest of her life. You just never know when adventure will call! TROUBLE WITH PARSNIPS is her first book for young readers (ages 9-12). She writes stories about all things whimsical, vegetable, or musical. In LOST WITH LEEKS, Prince Nero has to find his true North and rescue St. Nicholas before it's too late. In UNDER PRESSURE WITH A SQUASH: The Multiplication Problem, Princess Saffy and Prince Magellan face test after test to save their beloved dragon.
