LAURIE CALKHOVEN

 

Laurie Calkhoven has never swallowed a frog, battled imaginary bears, or had a slime war with ghosts like her character, Roosevelt Banks, but she has written more than fifty books for children. These range from beginning readers (You Should Meet Misty Copeland) and chapter books (Roosevelt Banks, Good-Kid-in-Training) to middle grade historical novels (Daniel at the Siege of Boston, 1775). Her newest book is Roosevelt Banks and the Attic of Doom.
