About the Author
Hannah Batsel is a book artist and illustrator who fell in love with bookmaking while pursuing a Fine Arts degree at the University of Georgia. She began printing her own illustrated art books on a Vandercook printing press from the 1950s and hand-binding them in small limited editions. Hannah has published two picture books for children: A is for Another Rabbit, inspired by the two rabbits she adopted from her local animal shelter, and The Knight of Little Import, about solving small problems to make a big difference.

"Tongue-in-cheek and not at all of little import." --Kirkus Reviews

"[A] playfully interactive story that suggests the grass isn't always greener somewhere else." --Publishers Weekly

"Batsel's artwork is a mesmerizing display of extraordinary mixed-media collage using a variety of handmade and purchased paper alongside paints, ink, watercolors, embroidery floss, artificial turf, and painted sawdust. Every page, down to the endpapers, is textured, rich, layered, and lovely. Batsel's second book as author-illustrator is quite the achievement."-- starred, Booklist

"For her collages, Batsel (A Is for Another Rabbit) works with a sweepingly wide range of unfussy materials, including thread, sawdust, and artificial turf--selections true to the spirit of this tale of resourcefulness, improvisation, and pluck. Although the author isn't so artless as to say so, The Knight of Little Import delivers the message that a good imagination is more rewarding than all the money in Biggerborough." --Shelf Awareness
