Meet Author Audrey Penn

Audrey Penn started her career as a ballerina dancing with the National Ballet, New York City Ballet, Stuttgart Ballet, and the Danny Diamond Dance Theatre. In 1980, she became too ill with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis (JRA) to continue dancing but, because she had participated in children’s theatre, children’s dance, and always enjoyed children’s literature, she turned to writing children’s books for her creative outlet.

Her passion for advocacy for children continually molds her writing style and subject matter. She has created her writing program – The Writing Penn – into schools, libraries, and children’s hospitals, where she shapes and refines her story ideas in partnership with kids.

Today, Audrey has written over 13 books and is a New York Times bestselling author.

A Color Game for Chester Raccoon Reviews

“Gibson creates a lighthearted forest environment for expressive Chester and his companions, while Penn encourages readers to observe the world around them.”

Publishers Weekly

“Most concept board books about colors rely on common items for identification–oranges and fire trucks, for instance. But this latest Chester Raccoon title incorporates a story and rhyming text as Chester and his friends discover colors in their surroundings…This makes the book a mite more challenging than the usual fare, but enjoyably so.”
