Eleanor Coerr

Eleanor Coerr

Eleanor Coerr was born May 29, 1922 in Kamsack, Saskatchewan, Canada, and grew up in Saskatoon. Two of her favorite childhood hobbies were reading and making up stories.

Eleanor has a fascination with Japan which began when she received a book called Little Pictures of Japan one Christmas. She pored over the colored illustrations. Happily, she had the opportunity to travel to Japan in 1949 as a writer for the Ottawa Journal. She wrote and illustrated her book, Circus Day in Japan using the farm family and a visit to the circus as models. It was published in Tokyo in 1953.

Eleanor Coerr began her professional life as a newspaper reporter and editor of a column for children. She taught children's literature at Monterey Peninsula College and creative writing at Chapman college in California. For the past 25 years, Eleanor has been writing children's books, lecturing, and visiting schools across the United States and abroad.
