"Brilliant."-Booklist "These books are fun to read. The stories...are well-written and focus on topics that interest kids."-Scripps Howard News Service "Dramatically written non-fiction series features eye-catching photographs."-Minneapolis Star TribuneAbout the Author:
Jennifer Dussling is lucky enough to have been surrounded by great children's books her whole life. As a teenager, she started working at a children's-only independent bookstore in Pennsylvania, and after graduating from college, she made her way to New York City, where she took a job as an editorial assistant at a publishing company. Since then, she's written over fifty books for kids, both fiction and nonfiction, licensed and original, including Bugs, Bugs, Bugs; Pink Snow and Other Weird Weather; Giant Squid; Slinky Scaly Snakes; and One Little Flower Girl. Jen lives in Tampa, Florida, and when she's not writing or editing, you can find her in her garden, on a volleyball court, or curled up with a good book.
