I'm Miriam Glassman, and for over 20 years, I've worked in children's books as an author, illustrator, librarian, book reviewer, and in publishing. I've also written humorous and personal essays for adults, so take a look around. Whether I'm writing or illustrating, I like to inject a sense of humor or whimsy into my work. Humor is a great way to celebrate our connections, and I think a laugh can often feel like a little vacation.
Recently, I've discovered how much I enjoy digital illustration and created a portfolio of greeting cards and notecards. This is a new venture, and I'm excited to see where this path might lead.
"Glassman enlivens her text with witty wordplay and sneaky fairy-tale reference." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)
