Charise Mericle Harper

Charise Mericle Harper makes books for children. Sometimes she writes them, sometimes she draws them, and sometimes she does both. Her books include, the Just Grace series, the Crafty Cat series, and picture books such as Cupcake, Go! Go! Go! Stop! and A Big Surprise For Little Card. Charise likes to keep busy: recent books include Mae and June and the Wonder Wheel, The Amazing Crafty Cat, The Doodle Book Of Feel Good, The Next Best Junior Chef series, and The Good For Nothing Button, part of the Elephant & Piggie Like Reading series. Charise loves books, but her favorite thing to do is to make comics . . . and sew.
