David LaRochelle – Local Children’s Book Author


David LaRochelle is a local author who has written over twenty-five children's books, many of which you'll probably recognize from the list below. While most of the children's book authors in the Twin Cities are friendly and active in the community, you can bet you'll run into Mr. LaRochelle if you frequent many children's book events. Find him selling books at local bookshops on Indie's First day, or at the Alphabet Forest at the State Fair or at book festivals around the metro. He also came out and celebrated Family Fun Twin Cities' 2016 Monster Birthday Bash with us to share his book Monster & Son.

We love our wonderful community of local children's book authors in Minnesota. Minnesota kids books cover all types of books from fiction to nonfiction. There are books about penguins, books about the ocean and, of course, books about Minnesota. Whatever you are looking for, chances are we have something great coming out of our great state.

Historically, While we Minnesotan's have to share Laura Ingalls Wilder with several other states, we do get to claim Wanda Gag, author of Millions of Cats, and Maud Hart Lovelace, author of the Betsy-Tacy books and the inspiration for the Maud Hart Lovelace Awards.

Three Reasons to Add Books by Minnesota Children's Book Authors to Your Own Bookshelves:

Besides the fact that they are producing some very high quality books for kids, there are some great reasons to add these books to your own bookshelf:

  1. You can often get your books autographed at book releases and other author events.
  2. Sometimes these local book authors do school visits.
  3. If you like the hunt of collecting used books, I've had really good luck finding autographed copies of these books when hitting the thrift stores. It's always exciting to find a book by someone local, but even more so, when I open the cover and find an autograph.
