Hi there! Welcome to my site. My name is Jenny Sue, and I am an author illustrator.
These are picture books I published with Christy Ottaviano Books/Henry Holt:
Papa Brings Me the World (2020)
Luna and Me: The True Story of a Girl Who Lived in a Tree to Save a Forest (2015) winner of the Santa Monica Public Library Green Prize for Sustainable Literature
Same, Same but Different (2011) winner of the Ezra Jack Keats New Illustrator Award and New Author Honor, the South Asian Book Award, and the Children’s Literacy Center Award
My Travelin’ Eye (2008), Zia Book Award winner
Students often ask what I like to do when I’m not in my studio… We live on a little homestead in the mountains with dairy goats, chickens, ducks, and a big vegetable and flower garden and greenhouses. I LOVE taking care of our animals and gardening with my family! I also homeschool with my kids Tulsi Lu and Narayan Blue so we are often creating, reading, performing plays and puppet shows, and going on adventures.
While I love the rural life and chasing my chickens around, I am a wanderer at heart and am always scheming to go camping, planning road trips, or dreaming of longer adventures to Mexico, Europe, South America, Nepal, India and more!
