Harriet Ziefert is a popular author of over 100 books for children and the owner and publisher of Blue Apple Books, located in Maplewood, NJ. Harriet has worked with such beloved and established illustrators as Arnold Lobel and also takes a particular interest in mentoring young illustrators early in their careers. One such collaboration is with illustrator Simms Taback, who began working with Harriet early in his career and has gone on to win two Caldecotts with books packaged by Harriet: the 2000 Caldecott Medal for Joseph Had a Little Overcoat (Viking) and a 1997 Caldecott Honor for There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly (Viking). Sterling Publishing is pleased to be adding Harriet's talent, experience, and unending passion for children's books to our expanding juvenile list.
