Eva Moore has been writing and editing children's books for more than forty years. She is the beloved author of many popular books, and lives in Montauk, New York.
A graduate of New York City's prestigious Cooper Union Art
School, accomplished artist and calligrapher Don Bolognese went on
to teach art there and at New York University, Pratt Institute, as
well as at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's medieval museum, the
Cloisters. He has illustrated more than 90 books for children, many
of which he wrote himself; on many others, he has collaborated with
his wife, the author and illustrator Elaine Raphael. One way in
which Bolognese has been able to connect teaching and illustration
is through his many "how-to" books for children, which range from
relatively simple exercises in drawing skills to more complex
lessons in art techniques. Bolognese himself has illustrated a wide
variety of fiction and nonfiction works, and his attention to
detail and vivid presentation have earned him critical acclaim and
numerous awards. A native of New York City, Bolognese now lives in
New York and Vermont.
