Read full description of the books Un año en la selva:A poignant look back at a traumatic year for Suzanne Collins as a first grader. Her healthy and vibrant father heads off to the Vietnam War, and little Suzanne has no concept of time, distance, and combat in a foreign land. You experience the horrors of war through the eyes of one so young and sheltered from the evils of the world. It introduces elementary children to the meaning of having a military parent and having little to no contact for prolonged periods of time, and the later shock of seeing your military parent so profoundly changed in appearance and behavior. It will take some planning to introduce students to the historical aspects of the Vietnam War to make this picture book understandable to them. For grades 1st and up.

Since 1991, Suzanne Collins has been busy writing for children’s television. She has worked on the staffs of several Nickelodeon shows, including the Emmy-nominated hit Clarissa Explains it All and The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo. For preschool viewers, she penned multiple stories for the Emmy-nominated Little Bear and Oswald. She also co-wrote the critically acclaimed Rankin/Bass Christmas special, Santa, Baby! Most recently she was the Head Writer for Scholastic Entertainment’s Clifford’s Puppy Days.
While working on a Kids WB show called Generation O! she met children’s author James Proimos, who talked her into giving children’s books a try.
Thinking one day about Alice in Wonderland, she was struck by how pastoral the setting must seem to kids who, like her own, lived in urban surroundings. In New York City, you’re much more likely to fall down a manhole than a rabbit hole and, if you do, you’re not going to find a tea party. What you might find...? Well, that’s the story of Gregor the Overlander, the first book in her five-part series, The Underland Chronicles. Suzanne also has a rhyming picture book illustrated by Mike Lester entitled When Charlie McButton Lost Power.
She currently lives in Connecticut with her family and a pair of feral kittens they adopted from their backyard.
The books she is most successful for in teenage eyes are The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay. These books have won several awards, including the GA Peach Award.
