Mary Pope Osborne: A Bridge of Children's Books

Mary Pope Osborne has written many books for children, but is known for her ever-popular MAGIC TREE HOUSE series.

Mary speaks to how she studied and fell in love with: character, setting, voice, and plot, using examples from many well-loved books and even childrens' letters.

"There's a huge range of how to tell stories with humor and depth."

But there's something more.

"Being a children's book author after thirty years is more than a way to earn a living. It's a way of looking at the world in a way of seeing more deeply, with more love and more attention, taking kids by the hand and asking them to come along."
