Who Wrote The Biggest Pumpkin

Sandra Horning

Sandra writes picture books, beginning readers, and, most recently, the Baby Code! series of board books. Her picture book The Giant Hug (Knopf, 2005, illustrated by Valeri Gorbachev) was a Junior Library Guild selection and an IRA Children’s Choice, and has been translated into many languages. Family, friends, pets, and nature spark the ideas for many of her stories. In addition to writing children’s books, Sandra also works as the library director of the Chaplin Public Library. Books surround her at home and at work! She lives in the Quiet Corner of Connecticut with her husband, two sons, and a flock of chickens and ducks (all named, of course).
