About the Author and Illustrator

Jean Marzollo When I was young, I liked to sew, play baseball, and read. I was drawn to poetry early in life. I loved to read, and one of my favorite books as a child was A Child's Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson. Also, my mother had several small poetry books on her bookshelf. With their leather covers and gold titles, they were treasures to me.
