About the Author:

As a child Elisa Kleven loved to make miniature, make believe worlds using art supplies, scraps, and imagination. She now uses that same joyful imagination to create the colorful, detailed worlds inside of her picture books.

Elisa is the author and illustrator of many books, including The Lion and the Little Red Bird and The Paper Princess, both of which have been adapted as theater productions, Sun Bread, a New York Times Best Illustrated Book, and her recent Glasswings, a Butterfly's Story. She has also illustrated numerous books for other authors, including the bestselling Abuela by Arthur Dorros and De Colores by Jose Luis Orozco, both ALA Notable Books..

Elisa lives with her family and pets in the town of Albany, a few minutes from San Francisco Bay. 

From Booklist:

Ages 4^-7. There is not a wrong note in this wonderful, upbeat picture book. Children will love not only the vibrant collages but also the story, built around a situation they'll easily recognize and understand. It's Clara's birthday, and her party plans include having a pinata, which she and her friend Samson intend to stuff with candy. But instead of taking Samson's advice and buying the fierce thundercloud monster, so perfect for "smacking and cracking and mashing and smashing," Clara buys a small, colorful dog, which she immediately takes to heart as she would a real pet. Now her party plans are tempered with sadness--to watch her floppy-eared friend be "whacked and cracked" will break her heart. There may be a minute or two of concern, but the joyful, brightly colored artwork leaves no real doubt about the sweet outcome. Magical yet full of warmth and homey details, the pictures are a seamless blending of watercolor, ink, and cut paper. Alive with color, pattern, and shape, they'll keep even the most easily distractible child fascinated. Stephanie Zvirin
