About the Author
It is no wonder Will Moses has found great success as a folk artist-he grew up around some of the best. At the age of only four years, Will began painting with his grandfather, Forrest K. Moses, a folk artist who learned to paint from his mother, Anna Mary Robertson, better known as Grandma Moses. Will, however, has received worldwide recognition for his own individual style, and his colorful and exuberant picture books have become favorites with today's children and their parents.
