Who Wrote Bugs Don't Hug

Heather L. Montgomery

Heather L. Montgomery writes books for kids who are wild about animals. Her subject matter ranges from snakes to snail tongues — the weirder, the wackier the better. With a B.S. in biology and an M.S. in environmental education, Heather’s specialty is using yuck-appeal to engage young minds. When she’s not writing or working with kids, you can’t find her knee-deep in a creek, canoeing a canyon, or up in a tree.
