Meet the Author

LONG VERSION:

Norman Pearl has written 10 children’s books. He writes on both science and social studies topics and can’t decide which he likes better.

Norman lives in tropical Miami, Florida, with his wife and son. They have a small, white, fluffy dog named Max. Max thinks he is human, so the four of them go just about everywhere together.
Norman usually writes his books under a palm tree while sipping lemonade. When he needs a break, he jumps in the pool for a swim. Usually, the rest of the family follows him in.
