Dorothy Canfield Fisher was a pioneer in children's literature. In
addition to writing more than fifty books for children, she was a
co-founder of the Book-of-the-Month Club and a key reviewer for
"The New York Times." While Ms. Fisher lived most of her life in
New York City, she retained an enormous affection for the hills of
Vermont, where she was raised.
Kimberly Bulcken Root has illustrated over fifteen books for children, most recently, "Birdie's Lighthouse." She and her husband, illustrator Barry Root, live with their children in Quarryfield, Pennsylvania.
