About the Author
ALICIA POTTER is also the author of Fritz Danced the Fandango, which won an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Award. When not creating tales inspired by her travels and her hometown by the sea, Alicia works as a freelance journalist and children's book reviewer. MELISSA SWEET is the Caldecott Honor artist of A River of Words by Jen Bryant, The Boy Who Drew Birds by Jacqueline Davies, and The Sleepy Little Alphabet by Judy Sierra, amongst many others. Her work has received numerous honors, and reviewers have described her unique mixed-media illustrations as exuberant, outstanding, and a creative delight.
Starred Review, Booklist, February 15, 2012:
"An engaging, graceful narrative.... Sweet's Asian style watercolor landscapes are breathtakingly beautiful."
"This little gem will be perfect for one-on-one sharing and for those second-grade biography assignments. It's simply stunning."
