Hello there! I'm Kate Hannigan, and I enjoy writing and researching books for young readers. I hope you'll follow the links and learn more about my books, visit my blog and read about other children's authors, and maybe send me a message. Because I like connecting with students in the classroom, I hope you'll stop by my school visits page and invite me out to your school!
