Not just for Children's Lit. students! AADL has recently added the Something About The Author Online database, a product from Gale Cengage Learning. This valuable resource compiles biographical profiles of authors and illustrators of books for kids and teens from the over 200 volume print set. Each profile includes information regarding the individual's personal life, contact details, career highlights, complete bibliography, and works in progress. Samples of illustrations are also included. You will find citations for other biographical and critical sources. Also included are all profiles from the Autobiography series of Something About The Author, providing rare first-person perspective about the author's career and works.

You can search this database by author, illustrator, title, or keyword, as well as combine terms and browse a complete list of included individuals.

This is one-stop shopping for info about your favorite author for kids or teens!

Good to know as a parent, that this database is available for book and author reports that come home from school. The database is very user friendly, too :D
