About the Author
EMMA BLAND SMITH is a librarian and writer living with her family in San Francisco. Her children's book debut, Journey: Based on the True Story of OR7, the Most Famous Wolf in the West, won the 2017 Sigurd Olson Nature Writing Award for children's literature, and the 2017 Cook Prize, which honors the best STEM picture book published for children aged eight to ten. ELIZABETH PERSON's unique illustrations and informational art are her specialties. She grew up exploring the San Juan Islands with her family, regularly flying on island in a 1959 Piper Comanche airplane. During the summer and holidays, you'll find her at many of the Pacific Northwest art festivals and urban craft events.
"A wide-format book in a style and subject matter reminiscent of Robert McCloskey's old favorite Time of Wonder, this picture book describes life on an island in the San Juans, off the Washington coast. . . . A heartfelt snapshot of a way of life."--Kirkus Reviews "I would recommend To Live on an Island to kids who like nature and to anyone who loves beautiful illustrations."--Kids Book Buzz
