Ellen Rothberg


Ellen Rothberg spends most of her days as an elementary school guidance counselor in Sugar Land, Texas, which affords her the opportunity to gain insight into what makes today’s kids tick. Along with that knowledge comes the irresistible urge to share the funny and sometimes prophetic things they do. By fictionalizing their best traits (and some of their not-so-best traits), she often creates works that entertain and teach at the same time.

Her works of fiction include the Sue Ellen series of picture books, Don’t Eat the Bluebonnets, Hayfest, A Holiday Quest, and Bully in the Barnyard, all written with co-author, Ellen Leventhal. The Ellens are currently working on a middle grade chapter book that, again, invites a glimpse into a child’s very humorous attempts to make his world a better place.
