About the Author
Margaret Wise Brown--probably most famous for writing "Good Night Moon "and "The Runaway Bunny"--was also a prolific and bestselling Golden Books author. Her "Golden Egg Book," "Home for a Bunny," "The Color Kittens," and "The Sailor Dog "count among the most popular storybooks for children of the last 60 years.
Karen Katz has written and illustrated many books for children, including "The Colors of Us", "Can You Say Peace", "My First Ramadan", "Counting Kisses" and "Where is Baby's Belly Button". Long inspired by folk art from around the world, she was inspired to write her first book, "Over the Moon", when she and her husband adopted their daughter from Guatemala, and she wanted to tell the story of welcoming Lena into their lives. Katz loves to paint and experiment with texture, color, collage and pattern. Besides an author and illustrator, she has been a costume designer, quilt maker, fabric artist and graphic designer. Katz and her family divide their time between New York City and Saugerties, New York.
