Jennifer L. Holm is a New York Times bestselling children’s author and the recipient of three Newbery Honors for her novels Our Only May Amelia, Penny from Heaven, and Turtle in Paradise. Jennifer collaborates with her brother, Matthew Holm, on two graphic novel series — the Eisner Award-winning Babymouse series and the bestselling Squish series. Her new novel, The Fourteenth Goldfish, will be published in August 2014. Jenni is looking forward to being a judge because it will give her an excellent excuse to ignore her children.
Jenni will serve as the 2014 BoB’s Big Kahuna.
