Patricia Polacco
  • I have enjoyed a wonderful career of writing
    books for children . Who could have guessed that
    little girl that was having such a tough time in
    school would end up an illustrator and author.
    Children and adults alike ask me where I get my
    ideas...I get them from the same place that you
    do....MY IMAGINATION...
