Lucy Ruth Cummins is an author, illustrator, and art director of children's books. She was happily paired with Jean Reidy for both Truman, which was named a New York Times Best Children's Book of 2019, and Sylvie. She is also the author-illustrator of Stumpkin, Vampenguin, Dalmartian: A Mars Rover's Story, Our Pool, and A Hungry Lion, or A Dwindling Assortment of Animals. Lucy has swum in creeks, streams, gorges, rivers, swimming holes, pools (above- and in-ground), lakes (both Great and Finger), decorative fountains, and oceans. Her very favorite place to swim, however, is at her community pool in Brooklyn with her sons and her neighbors.

"Demonstrate[s] how seemingly immutable personalities can be transformed by the power of love." -- Publishers Weekly

"An unconventional but effective look at how to recognize and express love." -- Booklist

"Denise's sweet text pairs with Cummins's dreamy and cozy illustrations about the transformative power of love and feelings of affirmation. A tender addition for most collections." -- School Library Journal
