Jeannie Baker’s first book was Polar (1975) and her latest book is Mirror (2010). She is a multi-award winning author for kids books.

I like Jeannie Baker because she is a great author for children. She writes books that have a true message in them. Her books are understandable and are easy to read. Her collages are creative and are environmentel. I hope she continues to writes books that inspire kids to be writers.
