pen names 1

Since the publishing’s beginning, authors of children’s literature have used pen names.  Did you know that Lewis Caroll is a pen name?  His birth name was Charles Lutwidge Dodgeson.  Dr. Seuss, of course, was a pen name for Theodore Geisel, as was Theo LeSieg (Lesieg is Geisel backwards).  More recently, Daniel Handler became famous as the author Lemony Snicket.  A few children’s authors have gone even more creative with their pen names. 

Here are 5 of my favorite funny pseudonyms:
