Books Authored


P.J. Shaw has received praise from Sesame Workshop for her imaginative storytelling in the Sesame Street rhyming books What Makes You Giggle? and Abby Cadabby's Rhyme Time. She won an award for front-page reporting at The Tennessean following a devastating tornado, and was recognized for her MLK book, Voices, in both The Washington Post and on John Seigenthaler's PBS show Word on Words, where she appeared as a guest author.


 



"We are happy to put [P.J. Shaw] at the top of our 'approved writers' list, which we send to
publishers if they are in need of freelance Sesame Street writing. We care
about [her] as a talented professional and as a wonderful person."

—Jennifer Perry, Editorial Director, Sesame Workshop
