Author: Mary Pope Osborne

Nice interview with Mary Pope Osborne, author of the Magic Treehouse books and many many others. Kids love these mystery adventures.

Did you have a treehouse when you were young?

No, but I always wanted one. I tried to write about a magic cellar, then magic whistles, then I wrote about a magic artist and studio and then a magic museum. None of those worked, and I didn't publish any of those. I was taking a walk and I saw a treehouse. It took a year to figure that out. The simplest ideas sometimes take the longest to get.

Thank you very much. You have a great deal of good stuff on your site for teachers. I am going to highlight it for "back to school."
