Ogden Nash was born in New York in 1902 and wrote The Adventures of Isabel in the 1930s. He published hundreds of poems, many of them for his two daughters, Linell and Isabel. They occasionally appeared as characters in his poems, as Isabel does in The Adventures of Isabel. Nash died in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1971.
Bridget Starr Taylor and her husband have two sons, a daughter, and very recently twin grandchildren. She and her family live in New York and spend summers and weekends at her farm in Connecticut. Bridget rides a bike wherever she goes and plays tennis, most often in polka-dotted shorts.
