About the author (1996)

Valiska Gregory is the author of A Valentine For Norman Noggs, illustrated by Marsha Winborn. The idea for Shirley's Wonderful Baby came from one of her favorite bookstore owners. When she asked Shirley Mullin of Kids Ink Children's Bookstore about her new grandchild, Shirley would always reply, "He's wonderful!" The author thought that an older sibling might have a slightly different point of view.

Ms. Gregory lives with her husband in Indianapolis, Indiana, where she is Writer-in-Residence at Butler University.

Stefano Vitale's award-winning artwork appears in galleries and exhibitions as well as in such picture books as When the Wind Stops, by Charlotte Zolotow (an ALA Notable Book). Mr. Vitale is a graduate of the University of Southern California and of the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. He lives with his family in Venice, Italy.
