About the Author

Pamela Dalton has spent more than 25 years working in the technique of Scherenschnitte ("scissor cuts"), which has its roots in 16th-century Germany and Switzerland and was brought to the United States by Pennsylvania Dutch settlers in the 18th century. Each of her illustrations is cut from one continuous piece of paper. She lives in Harlemville, New York.
