About the author (1996)

Linda Glaser is the author of many picture books for children. She was inspired to write this her first novel, after hearing the real Fivel speak to a sixth grade Sunday school class. She was moved by his rich stories and felt that she was somehow connecting with the world of her Eastern European Jewish grandparents, also immigrants. She lives in Duluth, Minnesota, with her husband and daughters. This is her first book for Houghton Mifflin.

Trained in fine arts and architecture in Bucharest, Romania, Anca has lived with her family in Northern California since 1985. Published, among others, by UNICEF, Dutton's Children's Books, Millbrook Press, Child Graphics Company, and Vision International, her writings and paintings--many a fusion of poetry with angel imagery--have won multiple national awards. She was also awarded a grant from the American Composers Forum for poetry.
