About the Author:

Patricia MacLachlan has written several award winning picture books and novels, including All The Places to Love, and the Newbery Medal winner, Sarah, Plain and Tall.

Emily MacLachlan lives near Boston with her husband, two cats, and two dogs. Painting the Wind is her first book.

Katy Schneider lives in Northampton, Massachusetts, with her husband, Dave, and three children, Olive, Mae, and Ellis. She is the illustrator of Painting the Wind and Once I Ate a Pie and exhibits her paintings nationwide.

From Booklist:

K-Gr. 3. It's summer, and the artists have returned to the island. The young narrator, a painter himself, has been waiting for their arrival. In this quietly told book, the boy recounts how each of four painters--an artist who paints flowers, a portraitist, a still-life painter, and a landscape artist--paint the same island. By observing each artist closely, the boy hopes to discover how to paint the wind. At the end of summer, the artworks, including the boy's picture of trees bending to the wind, are displayed. Perspective plays an underlying role throughout, both in Schneider's seaside backdrops and in her individual artists' points of view and works. Adding a droll touch is each artist's sidekick dog, with a personality as distinctive as its owner's art. The gentle prose pairs well with handsome artwork that evokes warm, strong sensory impressions through a combination of thick brushwork, texture, and a vibrant color palette. This first collaboration between Patricia MacLachlan and her daughter, Emily, gets to the heart of creativity in a way children will understand. Julie Cummins
