Note
"I decided to write and illustrate children's books in 1980. Three of my favorite things are books, painting, and writing, so I decided to combine all three and work on books of my own...While I enjoy writing my own stories, I love illustrating stories for other writers, like Kathleen Krull and Eve Bunting. Their books are perfection and it's fun to work with them." -- Kathryn Hewitt
