Rosemary Wells’s career as an author and illustrator spans more than 30 years and 60 books. She has won numerous awards, and has given readers such unforgettable characters as Max and Ruby, Noisy Nora, and Yoko. She has also given Mother Goose new life in two lavish, definitive editions (Candlewick), and has contributed to the world of older fiction with Mary on Horseback, Red Moon at Sharpsburg (both Viking), My Havana, Lincoln and His Boys and the recently released On the Blue Comet (Candlewick).
Rosemary Wells is a longtime proponent of litearcy, and an advocate of reading to the very young. As she says in Read to Your Bunny (Scholastic): “Reading to your little one is just like putting gold coins in the bank. It will pay you back tenfold. Your daughter will learn, and imagine, and be strong in herself. Your son will thrive, and give your love back forever.”
Rosemary just released Max & Ruby’s Bedtime Book (Viking) and is now at work on The Kindergators for HarperCollins. She is also developing mobile applications based on her characters. For more about Rosemary, visitwww.rosemarywells.com.
