She is the recipient of "Not Just For Kids Anymore Award" from the Children's Book Council, a National Parenting Publication Award, and a Young Readers Choice Award. She loves the magic and make-believe places that fairy tales offer, that they "give us permission to hold onto a childhood promise that 'anything is possible and we were put on this earth to take part in adventure.'"

"This is a modern retelling of a traditional fable and includes a glossary of Dena'ina words to learn. Whenever our great uncle Walter Johnson told us a story he would say, ‘Now you go and tell this story in your own way.’ We have taken this both as permission and as a directive.” Barbara Atwater
"I really wanted to draw the reader into this story. I began with a black marker, drawing bold shapes, cutting and collaging papers to build a palette. A small color book dummy evolved by doing, there were no mistakes at that point. The playful process allowed us all to see the shape of the book as it grew into a picture book with a graphic novel.” Mindy Dwyer
