Katy S. Duffield was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, and lived in the state most of her life. The annual yelling contest in Yell County, Arkansas, served as the inspiration for Loud Lula. The only time Katy hollers is when she sees a snake--or when somebody eats all the gravy before her biscuits have been properly covered. She is the author of eighteen children's books, including Farmer McPeepers and His Missing Milk Cows, illustrated by Steve Gray, which received multiple state award nominations and honors. She now lives in northeast Florida with her family. Learn more at www.katyduffield.com.

"The consistent language feels authentic and is filled with silly Southern expressions, such as when she has 'the whole schoolhouse shakin' like a big ol' bowl of boysenberry jelly.' The digital illustrations match the expressive energy. VERDICT: Book selectors who think they don't need another loud voice lesson book haven't met Lula yet." --School Library Journal
"An excellent classroom read-aloud...Recommended." --School Library Connection
