BookHounds Author Directory

Meet some of our favorite Minnesota children’s book authors in our BookHounds Author directory:

Miranda Paul, Children’s Book Author

Wisconsin, USA

Miranda Paul is not technically local. In fact, I've been disappointed in how infrequently she visits the Twin Cities. She lives in Wisconsin, where she grew up. However, we discovered her at Red Wing's Children's Book Festival and she quickly became one of my favorite children's book authors. She has a gift for taking a dry subject and making it, not only interesting, but poetic. Some of her books are co-authored with her husband, Baptiste.

Most Recent Release

Paul's latest book, Speak Up releases July 7, 2020. This timely book encourages kids to speak up, unite with others, and take action when they see something that needs to be fixed.

One of Miranda Paul's most recent books is Little Libraries, Big Heroes. You wouldn't expect a book about the origins of the Little Free Libraries to make you cry, but it did. I'd love to buy this book for all the big heroes in my neighborhood who maintain our the little free libraries on my walk routes.

Nine Months Until A Baby Is Born

This lovely book is perfect for the big brother or sister. In her usual poetic style, Miranda Paul links an unborn sibling's development with the changes happening for the family during each of the nine months of development. This would be a great sibling gift at a baby shower for a new parent.

Water is Water

This is the book that first introduced us to Miranda Paul. We won it in a drawing. At first, we were disappointed it wasn't one of the authors we already knew, but after reading it, we loved it. Follow water through all of its forms in this beautifully written book.

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.
