Jonathan London

Portrait of Jonathan London

Jonathan London and his family live in Northern California. He writes about things he has seen and done. He also writes about things he has dreamed or things that just pop into his head. Many of his stories are about nature and wild animals. He writes for children because their faces thrill him when they hear or read a story they love.


What is your favorite wild animal? Draw a picture of it in the wild. Then write a short story about something that happens to this animal. Gather the pages into a book. Use your picture as the cover. Share your story with a friend. Watch your friend's face as he or she hears or reads the story. Does your friend like your book?
