About the Author

After a number of years in science museum education and non-profit administration, she was lured back to school by the magic of making drawings come to life. She earned an MFA in 2D Animation from the Academy of Art University and her thesis film, "The Search for the Monster of Lake Quannapowitt", won Best Animation for Kids at Animation Block Party 2015. Sarah Lynne strives to pack all the dynamic energy of animation into each of her illustrations. Originally from Brooklyn, she now lives just outside of Boston with her husband and two little girls.

A "timely text" with "emotions...sensitively portrayed throughout... Affirming the resilience that can result when small acts are focused on community." - The New York Times

"This take on post-tragedy response delicately blends respect for sadness and the magnitude of tragedy with an actionable focus on the value of "one small thing" as a response." - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"The ambiguous nature of the circumstances makes [The Breaking News] appropriate for many situations children face in today's never-ending news cycle. An absolute-must for...libraries." - School Library Journal
