Bonnie Worth is one of those pen names of Kate Klimo. For Several Years, Kate was Vice President and Publisher of Random House Children’so Publications, the sole and only residence of Dr. Seuss, aka Theodor Geisel. Besides being a Random House best-selling author, he was also publisher and founder of Beginner Books, an imprint which boasts these Seuss-penned classics like The Cat in the Hat, Kick Pop, and Green Eggs and Ham. One of the final projects Geisel worked on, together with NASA, was a non-fiction Beginner Book spin-off. Unfortunately, he died before he managed to establish the collection. In her capacity as writer, Kate picked up where Seuss left off.
With the 1999 book of Oh, Say Can You Say Dinosaur? Kate launched The Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library. Today, the series figures more than two-dozen best-selling titles, half of which were written by Bonnie Worth. One of the last acts before stepping down as publisher from Random House, was to work with PBSKids to come up with an animated tv show with a natural science curriculum, depending on the Learning Library. Now in its third year, The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! Is a hit among young children and their lucky parents and educators.
Kate also writes the occasional Step into Reading Book as Bonnie Worth. Under her own name, Kate composed The Dragon Keepers and the Dog Diaries for middle-grade readers along with The Centauriad for young adults. Her newest book The Enchanted Dress Shop was optioned for the screen. She lives in New Paltz, New York, along with her husband and 2 horses.
