About the Author

The Martha Speaks TV show is based on the books written and illustrated by Susan Meddaugh. Susan grew up in New Jersey, studied art and illustration, and now lives in Massachusetts with her family — including her dogs of course. Martha was a real dog who lived with Susan and her family. One day, when Susan's son Niko (who was then 7) was eating alphabet soup, he wondered what would happen if they fed the soup to Martha. Would she talk? To find out more about Susan, watch the video!
