About the Author
Betty Sydow grew up and has spent most of her life in the Milwaukee area, enjoying camping, swimming, sailing, and racquetball. After retiring from a 30-year nursing career, she stumbled upon a creative writing class and was hooked. The story of Stanley began as a fable but over a year's time grew into a children's book. She asked her artist friend Carolou if she would illustrate Stanley's story, and, months later, Stanley came alive between the covers of his book.
Carolou Lennon Nelsen grew up in Oak Park, Illinois, and spent most of her adult life in the Milwaukee area. She has worked as an art educator, raised two children, and has a master's degree in social work. When her friend Betty Sydow asked her to illustrate her picture book about Stanley the sparrow, she was immediately drawn to its message of the strength of individuality.
