About the Author

Kim Norman is the author of several books for young readers, including Sterling's Crocodaddy and Puddle Pug, which School Library Journal called, "A beautiful tale of friendship, determination, and perseverance." The idea for this story began way back during the Ice Age, when Kim overheard her son singing a mangled version ("She'll be comin' 'round the corner when she GITS HERE!") after naptime. She lives with her husband in a part of VA. Visit Kim online at Liza Woodruff spends much of the winter sledding, skiing, and skating with her husband, son, and daughter in northern VT.
