Welcome to the official website of children's author Carmella Van Vleet. I'm so glad you stopped by.

After writing non-fiction for many years, I decided to try my hand at fiction. My first middle grade novel, ELIZA BING IS (NOT) A BIG FAT QUITTER, is available from Holiday House.
I love science and history and have numerous hands-on activity books for kids ages 6 and up.
I also have a few books for parents and teachers.
I've written a handful of books especially for the earliest readers.
Look for my picture books soon!
