About the Author

Megan Hoyt first fell in love with reading on a cozy branch of the crab apple tree outside her Texas home. She devoured Beverly Cleary's books there, and Marguerite Henry's "horsey books" still remind her of the loud Texas cicadas at dusk. Bartali's Bicycle is Megan's debut picture book biography. Her first picture book was Hildegard's Gift, and her poem, "Thanksgiving by the Lake," appears in the anthology Thanku: Poems of Gratitude. When she is not writing, Megan tutors child actors on set for Disney, Warner Bros., Showtime, and Cinemax, among others. She lives in Charlotte, North Carolina, where most days she is surrounded by three fluffy pups and piles upon piles of picture books.

Iacopo Bruno is an illustrator and graphic designer living in Milan, Italy.

Hoyt's prose is atmospheric and Bruno's bold, poster-style illustrations prove thoroughly immersive. An engrossing look at a humble man whose efforts benefited many.--Publishers Weekly
"A well-made story and a welcome, timely reminder of what true courage is."--Kirkus Reviews
