About the Author

Deborah Freedman was shy as a child. Now she is the sometimes shy, sometimes brave author of several picture books for children, including By Mouse and Frog, The Story of Fish and Snail, Blue Chicken, and Scribble. She lives in a quiet house in Connecticut, where she happily read and draws and listens to birds sing. You can learn more about Deborah at deborahfreedman.net.
