About the Author
Ted Kooser was the United States Poet Laureate from 2004 to 2006 and won a Pulitzer Prize for his book of poems Delights and Shadows. He is the author of twelve full-length volumes of poetry and several books of nonfiction, and his work has appeared in many periodicals. This is his first children's book. He lives in Garland, Nebraska.

Barry Root has illustrated many books for children, including The Cat Who Liked Potato Soup by Terry Farish and The Birthday Tree by Paul Fleischman. He lives in Quarryville, Pennsylvania.
Reviews
The exquisitely observed narrative renders the American landscape's dubious symbiosis--nominally natural, persistently industrial--worthy of a child's attention. . . . Root's gouache-and-watercolor pictures, suffused with the pale gold light of early-spring dawns, capture the injured land, its quirky denizens and the bag's familiar--well--bagginess. Wonderful.
