About the Author
Susan Lendroth's picture books range from science to history to children finding their place in the world--because Susan loves science and history and is still finding her place in the world! She works for the Los Angeles Public Library and devotes her spare time to a needy cat named Kitten. Her daughter's childhood love of the color purple inspired this book.

Olivia Feng is an artist and illustrator who is inspired by the unique way that children view the world. She loves nature and animals, and lives with a cat and three dogs.

A brightly illustrated picture book with a narrative that reads aloud well. -Booklist
Piper and Purpa Forever! allows parents to use the book to broach the subject of growing up.-Ronna Mandel

Many parents will relate to Lendroth's sweet story of how children often get attached to a special item and cannot accept letting it go.-Ronna Mandel

A delightful story of growing up, but not giving up on the thing you love. Lendroth's text seamlessly captures a child's love of something that they are slowly outgrowing without resorting to sentiment or nostalgia. Piper loved her purple sweater. She loved it even before she could pronounce the word purple. Some kids have a blankie or binkie, but Piper has Purpa, and for so long that she outgrows it. Her family members suggest new uses for Purpa, but Piper says no until the day she gets a new stuffed animal, a koala, and as he is given the sweater, he is also given Purpa's name. Feng's illustrations effortlessly depict all the characters' various emotions (including the dog and koala) with skill and humor. The family's adorable Yorkie is in nearly every scene, adding to the story's light humor. - School Library Journal
