About the author (1991)

Judy Delton was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, and has lived there most of her life. She has published more than one hundred books for children, including the popular Pee Wee Scouts series. A master at creating short, amusing episodes, Delton writes about ordinary children in a way often compared with that of Beverly Cleary, Eleanor Estes, and Carolyn Haywood.
