A picture book with minimal text and maximum impact, as portrayed through both the well-chosen words and the fun-filled, evocative illustrations.
Like so many little girls, Maryann Macdonald once dreamed of being a dancer. Dance lessons were not on offer in her big family but paper was, so Maryann became a writer instead. She has written twenty-nine books for young readers. She grew up near Detroit and lived for many years in France and England before making New York City her home.
Rahele Jomepour Bell is an illustrator of picture books. She culturally is from Iran and happily enjoys adding American culture to her origin. She believes all people share a common home in planet Earth, but may differ in their skin color, way of life, and their thinking. She loves these differences and believes this is what makes the world a beautiful place to live.
For Jill and Karen.
