After working briefly with an advertising agency in New York, she moved to Boston and worked at a publishing company for ten years, first as a designer, then art editor, and finally as art director.

Since that time, Susan has written and illustrated many popular books for children, including MARTHA SPEAKS, which was chosen as a NEW YORK TIMES Best Illustrated Book for 1992. In 1998 she was awarded the New England Book Award, given by the New England Booksellers Association to recognize a body of work.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennie DeGenaro
This Level 2 Green Light Reader is based on a television series teleplay written by Peter K. Hersch. Susan Meddaugh created the characters. "Martha, a dog, started talking when she was fed alphabet soup and the letters went to her brain." Martha goes to a farm for the first time and she is sure she will like it. When she gets to the farm, she finds a lot of work to do and much to learn. C.K., the farmer is patient and kind to Martha when things do not go exactly as planned. The sheep have a way of tricking Martha and the chickens were not helpful either. Martha sees an animal she thinks is a mean-looking dog, but it is much worse. This twenty-four page paperback book has amusing, colorful illustrations. A few words are singled out for word play to help children understand the vocabulary. Beginning readers should enjoy this book after reading some of the easier-level books. The "Martha Speaks" series includes picture books, chapter books and early readers. This series should be available in primary grades as well as in classes for reluctant readers. Reviewer: Jennie DeGenaro
