Meet the Author

Award-winning author, Sally O. Lee earned her BA in Studio Art and Art History (with distinction) from Colby College and then went on to study graphic design and painting in Boston (Art Institute of Boston) and in New York City (New York Studio School). She has had several shows of her work and received an art grant from The Massachusetts Institute of Technology to conceive and create a series of paintings, and from this came her 2002 exhibition- A Journey Into Abstraction. Some of Ms. Lee's paintings are in various private collections in the US.

In recent years, Ms. Lee has begun to write and illustrate children's books. Some of them deal with the struggles of living with some form of handicap...or, as the author prefers to call it, imperfection. Many of her illustrations have been published and she has earned both academic and public recognition for her important work in children's books. She has had illustrations published in Worldlink Magazine, IEEE Magazine, and several other publications.

Sally lives and works in Massachusetts.

Sally Lee writes "My children's books are an extension of my work as a painter. Writing is a new addition for me, and I am enjoying it very much. And creating the illustrations is a perfect way to continue my painting in a new direction and a nice way to complement my writing. I hope to write and illustrate many more".

Ms. Lee most recently won The Pinnacle Achievement Award for "Is there a monster over there?". Earlier awards include: Reader View's Reviewer's Choice Award - 2nd place - Children - Toddler to Five - 2008 for "The Tutu Ballet". She also won Best Picture Book - 2008 for "The Cake Thief", and Best Children's Book - 2008 for "The Rabbit and The Snowman" from BooksandAuthors.net. And most recently, the Family Choice Award 2009 for *"No, Never!"*

    makes learning about the alphabet fun

    What word would you imagine a cat might associate with the letter "L"? In our family we are cat lovers. In fact, we are now on our third cat, a just over one year old male yellow tiger named Butterscotch, which is both huge and rather mischievous. This book follows the journey of an adorable, furry gray cat with a cute pink bow through the alphabet. Some of the words are quite obvious. Cats enjoy playing with a BALL. Cats want to walk through a DOOR. Cats like to jump INSIDE a box. And cats will RUN. At least, ours surely does! Others are not quite so obvious. What would a cat do with a LEMON? If you give a lemon to a cat, might it roll the thing around and chase it like a toy?
    What a novel way to help introduce young children, especially those who are familiar with cats, to the alphabet. When award-winning author and illustrator Sally O. Lee was asked why she wrote this particular story, she said, "I love cats! Everyone loves cats. Or most people do. I wasn't sure what to write for my next book. I adopted a cat a while ago, and I learned so much from him. Cats are thoughtful, intuitive, clever, playful, serious, silly, full of love, and loyal! I wanted to incorporate a cat in to a book but was not sure how I wanted to do it. Finally, I decided on the alphabet because it is one of the first things a child learns, and why not make it fun?"
    In addition to their becoming familiar with the letters of the alphabet along with their sounds and being able to look at the colorful illustrations, children will notice a couple of other challenging activities. One is the added surprise of trying to find the "Lee" signature hidden in each of the illustrations. They are also asked to think of other words that begin with each letter, and they can make up their own stories about them. Sally is also the author and illustrator of the Lucy series of books, consisting of Lucy (2003), Lucy's Halloween (2003), Lucy the Dancing Bunny (2004), Lucy Wakes Up (2004), Lucy Makes a Valentine (2005), Lucy's Tea Party (2005), Lucy and Seymour's Circus (2006), and Nightie Night, Lucy (2007). A Cat's Alphabet Book will surely make learning about the alphabet something that's fun to do.
