About the Author
Randi Sonenshine grew up on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, surrounded by the watery wonders of the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Her debut picture book, The Nest That Wren Built, was named a Chicago Public Library Best of the Best selection and a Capitol Choices Noteworthy Book. She is also the author of The Lodge That Beaver Built. She lives with her husband and two sons in Northwest Georgia, where she is a middle-school literacy specialist and instructional coach.

Anne Hunter is the illustrator of The Nest That Wren Built and The Lodge That Beaver Built by Randi Sonenshine and the author-illustrator of such picture books as Possum and the Summer Storm, Cricket Song, and Possum's Harvest Moon. Originally from South Florida, she now lives in Vermont with her family.
Hunter's ink, watercolor, and colored pencil illustrations bring warmth and accessibility to the subject, inviting readers into the pages. The illustrations depicting the end of life for the mother octopus are particularly moving; these scenes and their use of color convey sadness, sacrifice, and hope. . . . A great read-aloud choice for older readers.
