Sarah Kirwan Blazek, born in County Wexford, Ireland, is now a teacher in Chicago, Illinois, and retains dual citizenship in both Ireland and the United States. She also is the author of An Irish Night Before Christmas and A Leprechaun's St. Patrick's Day, as well as the narrator of the companion audiocassette, which is a compilation of these two books. All are published by Pelican. Author/illustrator James Rice (1934-2004) produced sixty books, including the illustrations for Pelican's treasured The Night Before Christmas Series. Rice's first book, the well-loved classic Cajun Night Before Christmas(R), has more than 750,000 copies in print. Young readers can enjoy more of Gaston(R)'s adventures in Gaston(R) Goes to Mardi Gras and sample Rice's other children's stories with favorites such as Texas Jack at the Alamo. With more than 1.5 million copies of his books in print, Rice ranks among the nation's best-selling creators of children's books, receiving awards from Printer Industries of America and the Children's Book Council, among others. Years after his death, Rice's family found the art and text Gaston(R) Joins the Circus, and this discovery has brought Gaston(R) back for one more adventure!
