Harry G. Allard
Tomie DePaola- has a ton of books--love him
Gail Gibbons (non-fiction)
Eric Carle--there is a wonderful video that shows how he makes his pictures. My kids loved this and we did our own Eric Carle style illustrations after watching it.

That sounds interesting exactly what do you include in an author study? Do you do it at home or in class?
Robert Munsch also has a great website.

Ours is done in class. We look at a website when available. We always have the kids write a letter to the author.
