Jeffrey Bone, PsyD, and Lisa Bone, PhD, are
psychologists in private practice in Orange County, California.
Jeffrey graduated from Kenyon College and the California School of
Professional Psychology. Lisa graduated from the University of
Alabama and the California School of Professional Psychology. They
are parents to two girls, who have inspired them to create poetry
and whimsical stories for their nightly entertainment. Their
children are cute, but ferocious, and the authors do not dare to
hold back silly words or ideas that make them laugh.
Valeria Docampo's inspiration for her art is rooted in everyday life: the eyes of a dog, the shape of a tree, the sound of rainfall, and the aromas of breakfast. Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, she studied graphic design and visual communication at the University of Buenos Aires. She has illustrated several books for children, notably Pequenos y Gigantes, Celebra Kwanzaa con Botitas y sus gatitos, La soupe à la tortue, and Phileas's Fortune.
A Top Ten Title, 2015 ALA Rainbow List
“The authors keep their messaging to a minimum; coupled with the emotion and humor in Docampo’s artwork, it goes a long way to helping the book feel like a book and not just a resource.”—Publisher’s Weekly
“This is another example of the excellent and instructive books published by the American Psychological Association.”—Spirituality and Practice
“The thrust and charm of the poem is sweetly powerful, perfectly expressed and complemented by the swirling, stunning illustrations by Valeria Docampo. Not Every Princess is a children's title that constitutes required reading for all children (and their parents)....Not Every Princess has a strong positive message about using one’s imagination to awaken one’s full potential, and is highly recommended.”—Midwest Book Review
