JULIE DAVIS CANTER, AUTHOR
Julie Davis Canter is the author of the new ebook series for children, Waddley Sees the World, which follows the travels of a young penguin named Waddley as he learns about geography and makes new friends around the world. A seasoned writer and editor, her first book, 365 Ways to Say Let’s Be Friends, was published when she was just 16.
She has written over 50 books for readers of all ages, including 18 books for children: early learning board books, rhyming picture books, themed activity, sticker and coloring books: Manga Style Adventures For Girls and Manga Style Adventures For Boys, the first American Manga coloring book comics. She was inspired to write Waddley to encourage children to become as fascinated with the countries of the world as they are with lovable penguins; he’s the perfect tour guide for fun global adventures.
Canter was literally “born to be a writer.” Her mother, Rochelle Larkin, started as a humor book writer, then went on to write romance novels, children’s books, and music and film anthologies. She is married to Len Canter, also a writer, and they have two children, Alexandra, 24, and Sam, 20, who love books but have chosen decidedly different careers.
