About the Author
When her mother framed the rooster she drew in kindergarten, Susan Eaddy decided she wanted to be a verrrry famous artist when she grew up. She now sculpts clay into illustrations for magazines and children's books, including My Love for You Is the Sun (Little Bahalia) and Papa Fish's Lullaby (Cooper Square). Poppy's Best Paper is the first book she has written.
When Rosalinde Bonnet was little, she couldn't decide if she wanted to be an artist, an illustrator, or a zoologist. Now she writes and illustrates children's books that often feature animals—like Poppy! She is the illustrator of The Art Collector and The Little Red Elf, and the author and illustrator of several picture books available in France, Belgium, and the United Kingdom.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I enjoyed the story for the simple lesson of things don't come easy for most of us. While Poppy plays and jots down a few sentences without putting her heart into it, Lavender works on her paper and gets recognized for it, making Poppy upset since she is the one that wants to be a writer. Poppy was jealous and tried it again, but to no avail. Only when she really thought about it and put her heart into her paper did she get what she was looking for. Great story and great illustrations! ARC through Netgalley for an honest review.
