About the Author

Deborah Blumenthal is an award-winning journalist and nutritionist, and the author of seventeen books for children and adults. She has been a regular contributor to the New York Times (including four years as the New York Times Magazine beauty columnist), and a home design columnist for Long Island Newsday. She lives in New York City.

Educated at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Mary GrandPrรฉ began her career as a conceptual illustrator for local editorial clients. Continually experimenting with media, Mary underwent many artistic changes in her expressive visual form. Her concerns for light, color, drawing, and design came together in evocative, ethereal pastel paintings evolving toward a style she now calls "soft geometry."

In addition to her work on the covers of the Harry Potter books, Mary has now illustrated several children's books. Her book illustration possesses highly personalized lyrical story interpretations and has received very favorable reviews in the national press.
