Patricia Polacco is the beloved award-winning illustrator, designer, and creator of more than 90 beloved children’s books including The Keeping Quilt, The Blessing Cup, Fiona’s Lace, Junkyard Wonders, Thank you, Mr. Falker, The Trees of the Dancing Goats, Babushka’s Doll, and My Rotten Redheaded Older Brother. Young readers are drawn to her warm hearted stories and beautiful watercolor illustrations.

Polacco belongs to a family of storytellers, poets, farmers, teachers, and artists who come from many parts of the world, but mainly Russia. She describes her family members as marvelous storytellers. “My fondest memories are of sitting around a stove or open fire, eating apples and popping corn while listening to the old ones tell glorious stories about their homeland and the past. We are tenacious traditionalists and sentimentalists… With each retelling our stories gain a little more Umph!”
