About the author (1986)

Miriam Cohen is an avid champion of the emotional rights of children, and is interested in their "immense vulnerability, and their need to be nurtured, encouraged, and allowed to unfold naturally." She has spent many hours in classrooms reading, listening, and talking with children 'not as a lecturer, but as a fellow writer.' The time she has spent in the company of children is one reason why her books ring true, and why young readers hear themselves in the voices of her characters.
