Profile

Kari Anne Holt has dedicated her writing career to making sure kids (and adults) understand that anyone can be the main character of a book, and everyone deserves to see themselves reflected on the page.

From her award-winning middle grade novels-in-verse, Ben Bee and the Teacher Griefer, Redwood & PonytailKnockoutHouse Arrest, and Rhyme Schemer, to her prose novels From You to Me and Gnome-a-geddon, to her picture book, I Wonder, illustrated by Kenard Pak, KA Holt’s readers will discover main characters that struggle, celebrate, wonder, and discover in ways both new and familiar.
