AUTHOR: One of five siblings, GREGG KLEINER grew up in rural Oregon splashing in creeks and climbing trees, milking goats and playing the French Horn. At age 16, he spent a year as an AFS exchange student in the mountains of northern Thailand, where he lived for a month at a Buddhist monastery under the tutelage of an aged monk. Although he didn't wear a lot of pink as a boy, the color has grown on him, and he hopes we might all wake up tomorrow and see the particular shade of pink featured in this book - his first for children (and their adults). His novel for adults, "Where River Turns to Sky," was a finalist for both the Paterson Fiction Prize and the Oregon Book Award, and was optioned for a feature film by Fox Searchlight. ILLUSTRATOR: As a visual thinker, it's no wonder that LAUREL THOMPSON became an artist. She, too, grew up in Oregon, exploring her fascination with art, dance, and nature. This is Laurel's first fully illustrated book, and she feels honored to be helping bring such an important story to life. Whether you think in pictures or not, Laurel hopes that you, too, will see the particular shade of pink this book calls attention to.
