Meet Dori - Author of the Wonder World Kids series
Author on the left, goat on the right
Dori Marx grew up in Austria and traveled the world several times before choosing New England as her home. Here, she lives with her husband, three children, and a senior dog, along with an ever-growing number of rescue goats, pet chickens, and fish. Although she isn’t a vet, she has a soft spot for all living beings and has even learned to coexist with the spiders in her basement.
Dori's books are illustrated by artists living in the countries that the Wonder World Kids visit. These local illustrators lend their unique style to the artwork for each book.
Wonder World Kids is her first book series for emerging young readers.
“I wanted to create a book with shorter chapters and text blocks so you can keep reading. Let's be honest: isn't it always more fun to finish 5 chapters before bedtime?
Go beyond fairies who lose charms or princesses on unicorns. In my first story you'll discover fun facts about royal horses, a child composer, and even a delicious chocolate cake... and best of all, they're all true!
I love working with local illustrators who capture the real atmosphere of the destinations in their pictures. Isn’t it exciting to see how Lilly, Fynn, and Celia’s style changes in each adventure?”
