About the Author

Eve Bunting, who has written many books for children, including Pirate Boy, was inspired to write Washday when she came across a set of washing instructions written long before the days of electric washers and dryers. She lives in California with her husband.

While Brad Sneed illustrated Washday, he tried to give the art the feeling of a memory. "I felt the illustrations should represent a fond recollection--light and form viewed through the gossamer filter of time," he explains. "I was careful to allow colors to merge so that edges are defined not so much by variation in hue or value but by the pencil marks that peek beneath layers of translucent paint." Brad is the award-winning illustrator of more than twenty books for children. He lives in Kansas with his wife and daughter.
