Dori Marx

Author of the Wonder World Book Series

Dori Marx grew up in Austria and traveled the world several times before choosing New England as her home.

There, 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 veterinarian, 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 curious young readers.



“During the long evenings of accompanying my two emerging readers on their journey to become lifelong book enthusiasts, I lamented the lack of engaging but educational chapter books for those awkward in-between stages around seven to ten years.

I believed that shorter chapters and text blocks would keep my children committed longer and help them build their reading stamina while boosting their confidence.”
