Welcome!  You’ve arrived at the web site of children’s book author Deborah Diesen.  This web site is undergoing some renovations this fall, so it may look much different next time you visit.  But in the meantime, I hope you’ll make yourself at home and look around.  I’m glad you’re here!

I’m the author of The Pout-Pout Fish series, illustrated by Dan Hanna.  The first story was The Pout-Pout Fish.  The second was The Pout-Pout Fish in the Big-Big Dark.  The newest in the series is The Pout-Pout Fish Goes to School.  And younger children may enjoy the mini-adventure board book Smile, Pout-Pout Fish.  Learn more about the Pout-Pout Fish books at  My other books are The Barefooted, Bad-Tempered Baby Brigade (illustrated by Tracy Dockray) and Picture Day Perfection (illustrated by Dan Santat).
