Johanna Hurwitz (born October 9, 1937) is an American author of more than sixty children's books. She has sold millions of books in many different languages.

Hurwitz graduated from Queens College, New York with a degree in English and Columbia University with a master's in library science.

After many years working as a librarian, Hurwitz wrote her first book, ''Busybody Nora'', in 1976, one of the first in the chapter book genre for transitioning young readers from shorter stories to novels.
