I am CAROLINE ARNOLD, and I am the AUTHOR of more than 150 books for children. I am also an ILLUSTRATOR. My books are inspired by my love of nature and my travels. For insight into my creative process, look in Behind the Story.

I have two BLOGS. To learn about my art and writing process go to Caroline Arnold Art and Books. For my travel writing go to The Intrepid Tourist. You can also follow me on Twitter @CarolineSArnold

I love to visit SCHOOLS and LIBRARIES to talk about my books and the writing and illustrating process. To learn more about my school visit programs click here or on the link on the bar at the top of the page.

For ACTIVITIES linked to my books, go to Children's Projects. Some of the projects are also described on the book pages and, in some cases, have downloadable activity sheets.
