About the Author

She is now the author of over fifty books for children, including the "New York Times" bestsellers "The Quiet Book", "The Loud Book", and "Here Comes the Easter Cat".When she s not writing, you might find her singing in a chamber choir, playing a ukulele (very badly), walking around in Golden Gate Park, baking vegan cookies, or petting any dogs, cats, pigs, or turkeys that happen to be nearby.

Renata Liwska lives and works in Calgary, Canada, with her illustrator husband, Mike. Her childhood memories are of growing up in Warsaw, Poland.
