About the Author:

Dori Chaconas was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1938. The second child in a family of seven, Dori fell into the role of storyteller, nursery rhyme singer, and general entertainer for her siblings. She claims she learned about story pacing early. If the story action lagged, her fidgety audience would either scatter or start a poking war.

She has been married to Nick, her high school sweetheart, for 44 years. Everyone says the romance will last. They raised four daughters, and are now enjoying three grandsons—especially Grandpa, having been outnumbered by women all those years.

When their daughters were young, Dori wrote for them. She published three picture books and more than fifty stories in children's magazines. In the 70's, her interest turned to yarn embroidery design and she sold designs to major needlework companies and national magazines.

In 1997, Dori started writing stories again, partly to keep her grandsons from fidgeting or starting poking wars. Her stories reflect the warmth of family life. Dori gives credit to her parents for giving her a strong sense of family, and to her children and grandchildren for keeping it alive.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2–Cork and Fuzz, a muskrat and a possum, meet and discover that they have nothing in common. One eats beetles and the other eats "veggie stuff"; one loves the water and the other can't float. They are both bored, however, and each is looking for a friend. Their attempts to find a shared activity are gently comical and ultimately successful. Young readers will empathize with the challenge of making friends with someone who has different tastes and interests. The story's repeated words and entire sentences will help beginning readers feel successful. McCue's endearing drawings add personality and humor to the animals' faces. An excellent addition to easy-reader collections.–Kathleen Meulen, Blakely Elementary School, Bainbridge Island, WA
