About the author (2002)

Laura Krauss Melmed grew up in New York City, where the library was one of her favorite places. I was always staggering home with giant armloads of books, she says, and I must have read every fairytale book there was. The red one, the blue one, the green one all of them.

Laura's first book, The Rainbabies, with illustrations by Jim LaMarche, was published to critical acclaim in 1992. Her second book, The First Song Ever Sung!, with illustrations by Ed Young was published in 1993. Since then Laura has gone on to write many other favorites, including I Love You as Much!; Little Oh!; This First Thanksgiving Day!; and Capital!, about her hometown of Washington, DC.
