Ashley Spires is the author and illustrator of many books including the bestselling The Most Magnificent Thing, The Thing Lou Couldn't Do and the Binky the Space Cat series.

Ashley lives just outside Vancouver, British Columbia, with her dog and far too many felines.

Reviews

... readers will empathize with the young builder when her confidence is shaken, and admire her perseverance, skill and renewed enthusiasm... Magnificent ideas can arise, sometimes when they're least expected.--Canadian Children's Booknews

Reassuring banter for any young maker hitting their first rough patch.--Kirkus Reviews

It's a useful description of the creative process, an affirmation of making rather than buying, and a model for girl engineers.--Publishers Weekly (Praise for The Most Magnificent Thing)

Spires' understanding of the fragility and power of the artistic impulse mixes with expert pacing and subtle characterization for maximum delight.--Kirkus Reviews - Starred Review (Praise for The Most Magnificent Thing)

This is a solid choice with a great message that encourages kids not to quit in the face of disappointment but rather to change their perspective and start over.--School Library Journal (Praise for The Most Magnificent Thing)
