Who Wrote John Muir Wrestles a Waterfall

author & illustrator
Julie Danneberg

After graduating from the University of Colorado, Boulder, Julie Danneberg became a teacher. In her classroom, she read many children’s books and witnessed the profound impact a good book can have on a child. “I was motivated to try and write books like the ones I enjoy reading.” Julie earned great success with First Day Jitters–the funny and engaging story of Sarah Jane Hartwell’s first day at a new school. The surprise ending charms and delights readers time and again. Teachers and students alike love these stories, and they are perennial favorites for back-to-school. Julie lives with her husband and two children in Denver. She teaches at a local middle school where she garners ideas for her books. When she’s not writing, Julie enjoys reading, quilting, gardening, and spending time with her family. Judy Love is a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design. She has illustrated numerous children’s books, including First Day Jitters and Last Day Blues by Julie Danneberg. She lives in North Carolina.
