About the Author

Amy Young was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and though she trained and practiced as a lawyer, she has always wanted to be an artist. Her first picture book, which she wrote and illustrated, was Belinda the Ballerina. Since then, she has written and illustrated many picture books. She lives in Spring Lake, Michigan, with her husband.

Reviews

"The pencil, pen, and watercolor illustrations, done in a simple, loose style, offer expressive, playful character poses. And Young hits all the visual beats, creating something likable and appealing...A tale about coming to love someone--or something--for who they are and not what one hopes them to be: a pleasant addition to the odd-couple shelf." --Kirkus

"She had to admit: sometimes he made her smile and sometimes he made her laugh," writes Young (Don't Eat the Baby!), whose storytelling and watercolor cartooning are spot-on in their comic timing. Her message to readers is clear: self-awareness and finding a soul mate don't always come easily." --Publishers Weekly
