Janee Trasler

Grapevine, TX

Hi, y’all! I write and illustrate funny books for kids. I love stories with humor and heart, and if I can fit quirky in there too, all the better. Some of my books include the popular Chickies series from HarperCollins and the Frog and Dog series from Scholastic. I am represented by Jamie Weiss Chilton at Andrea Brown Literary Agency.

Some of my publishing and illustration clients include HarperCollins, FSG, Scholastic, Sterling Publishing, LittleBrown, Random House, Simon & Schuster, Houghton Mifflin, Harcourt, Zonderkidz, Highlights magazine, McGraw-Hill, Barnes & Noble, USA Weekend and others.

When I’m not working on books, you will probably find me singing, playing mandolin, petting dogs, or making puppets say ridiculous things.

I live in Grapevine, Texas with my imported hubby John, my two domestic puppies, and one very squeaky guinea pig. And I work in my studio in Covington (Texas, not Louisiana).
