Meet the Author


Joy Cowley began to write for children as a way to help her son with his reading. Since then, she has written over 400 books for early readers, including the Boston Globe/Horn Book winner Red-Eyed Tree Frog, Mrs. Wishy-Washy, Big Moon Tortilla, and Gracias, The Thanksgiving Turkey. Her latest title is Chameleon, Chameleon, which is a follow-up to the Red-Eyed Tree Frog. She currently writes for both adults and children.

In grade school, Joy was struggled with reading. However, when she discovered the adventures found in books, she “forgot” that she couldn’t read. “By the age of 11, I was a book addict who haunted the local library,” says Joy. “ And like all children who over-dose on reading, I penned the overflow. Writing too, became an addiction.”

She married a farmer when she was twenty-years-old, lived on a dairy farm and raised four children. “During those years I milked cows, changed diapers, made puppets and play dough and wrote short stories in the evenings.” Joy states. An editor in New York read one of those stories, reprinted in Short Story International. That query led to five novels for adults. She was also writing stories for her son Edward, who was a slow reader. These little stories made their way to other children, other schools and by the early 1970s, teachers were making “big books” from them to use with their students. “Can you get these stories published?” they asked.

Joy is still writing full-time. These days the creative hours are divided between adult writing — articles, spiritual reflection material, stories and novels — and books for children.

Joy Cowley lives in New Zealand with her family.

Mr Cepeda received his BFA in illustration from California State University, Long Beach in 1992 and also studied Engineering at Cornell University. He is the illustrator of awarding-winning picture books such as What a Truly Cool World and Nappy Hair.

    Heartwarming story about friendship

    This story is great for the holidays. It is heartwarming, and touching. The infusion of spanish langaguage and culture is great. It is also a great book for children who live in cities, as it showcases life in a city perfectly.

    Excellent story!

    Awesome Thanksgiving book!

    This book should be reprinted. I would have liked to have new hardcover versions instead of the used ones I purchased. It's an overall fun read! Its great for the 4-8 age range, particularly those already familiar with some of the Spanish words.

    Cute, Funny, & Good for Classroom w/ Spanish Speaking Students

    I read this book to a group of first graders and they loved it. It has Spanish words sprinkled throughout which was something my ELL students loved to help out with.
