The Best Pet of All

I am such a lucky man! I get to make my living writing and illustrating books for young people. Welcome to my website where you can read about my books, discover what I was like as a kid, and even try your hand at some of my puzzles.

What's New with David?

Here are a few of the things I've been up to lately:

David LaRochelle's New Books New Books for 2013!

Calling all picky eaters! My latest picture book, How Martha Saved Her Parents from Green Beans, has just been released. You have never seen such villainous green beans like those marvelously illustrated by Mark Fearing! Read more about Martha and her brave attempt to rescue her parents from a gang of dastardly vegetables here.

Arlo's ARTrageous Adventure! The first book where I get to be both author and illustrator. When a boy gets dragged to the art museum, he has a lot more fun than he ever imagined. 50 flaps make the artwork in this interactive book spring to life.

One cow. One car. One word...One udderly chaotic adventure.
I have been waiting years for this book, and with Mike Wohnoutka's moo-velous illustrations, the wait has been well worth it!

Moo? Boo! It's that time of year again. For inspiration, take a look at The Haunted Hamburger and Other Ghostly Stories and enjoy inspiration from my carved pumpkin designs over the years.
Your students will have a rollicking time with this easy-to-read Reader's Theatre script of The Haunted Hamburger, adapted by educator Heidi Grosch. No costumes or sets necessary!
