Meet the Author
Dori Chaconas was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1938. The second child in a family of seven, Dori fell into the role of storyteller, nursery rhyme singer, and general entertainer for her siblings. She claims she learned about story pacing early. If the story action lagged, her fidgety audience would either scatter or start a poking war.
She has been married to Nick, her high school sweetheart, for 44 years. Everyone says the romance will last. They raised four daughters, and are now enjoying three grandsons—especially Grandpa, having been outnumbered by women all those years.
When their daughters were young, Dori wrote for them. She published three picture books and more than fifty stories in children's magazines. In the 70's, her interest turned to yarn embroidery design and she sold designs to major needlework companies and national magazines.
In 1997, Dori started writing stories again, partly to keep her grandsons from fidgeting or starting poking wars. Her stories reflect the warmth of family life. Dori gives credit to her parents for giving her a strong sense of family, and to her children and grandchildren for keeping it alive.

My grandson is 6 and we have been reading Cork and Fuzz for some time. These books have two very engaging and funny characters who provide a look at what friends are all about even when you are different from each other. They always make Mitchell laugh and he always picks these books for his reading pile. I recommend these books to anyone looking for a book that is very open to interpretation with sound effects and voices and lends itself to reading over and over. Mitchell anticipates certain pages in the stories and is giggling before we get there!
