Meet the Author

Amy Hest says, "It's been a long time since I was a schoolgirl, but I STILL remember those first-day blues. Knots in my stomach, and all those secret worries. Would I have a friend? Would my teacher like me? If only I could just stay at home...Of course, I wasn't ALLOWED to stay home. Those grownups were so bossy, sending me off with a kiss and chopped-egg sandwich. 'Off to school, Amy Lynn!' Funny, I really liked school, maybe even loved school, once I got rid of those first-day blues."

Jill Barton says that the illustrations for the Baby Duck books, "indeed all my books, have been influenced by my own memories. My illustrations are laden with pickles and fruit and jam in neatly labeled jars, with fields and farms, ducks and pigs and horses and cats and dogs, and with farmers in bowler hats and flowered waistcoats, looking suspiciously like my Grandpa."
