About the Author
Eleanor Coerr is the author of many books for young readers, including The Big Baloon Race, a Reading Rainbow book, Chang's Paper Pony, and The Josefina Story Quilt, a Notable Children s Trade Book in the Field of Social Studies.

Few writers have made such an impression on so many generations of readers as Kate Douglas Wiggin (1856 1923). Ms. Wiggin spent her childhood in Hollis, Maine, a place very much like Rebecca s home. A devoted advocate for early childhood education, she, along with her sister, Nora, founded a school for kindergarten teachers, as well as the Salmon Falls Village Library, which still serves as the town library for Hollis.

Deborah Kogan Ray has illustrated many books for children. She lives in Philadelphia, PA.
