About the author (1992)

Picture book author and illustrator Ann Jonas was born in Flushing, New York in 1932. She attended Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York. After graduation, she worked in graphic design and married fellow Cooper Union graduate and graphic artist Donald Crews. When her husband's military service took them to Frankfurt, Germany in 1963, she worked for a German advertising agency. They moved back to New York and started a freelance design business where she continued to focus on graphic design and her husband focused on illustrating children's books. After being urged by her husband and his editor to try her hand at creating picture books, she wrote and illustrated When You Were a Baby in 1982. Her picture books often use odd, abstract images in order to stretch children's imaginations. Her book Round Trip was an ALA Notable Book and a New York Times Best Illustrated Book. She and her husband currently share a studio in their up-state New York farmhouse overlooking the Hudson River and the Catskill Mountains.
