About the Author

As a child in West Virginia, Cynthia Rylant never dreamed of becoming a writer. In her free time, she devoured Archie comic books and paperback romances and enjoyed the outdoors. But after taking one college English class, she was, "hooked on great writing... I didn't know about this part of me until I went to college-didn't know I loved beautiful stories." And one night, inspired by the Southern writer James Agee, she sat down and wrote When I Was Young in the Mountains. Named a Caldecott Honor Book and an ALA Notable Book, it was an instant success.

Since that night, Rylant hasn't stopped creating wonderful books. Her stories explore friendship, love, grief, and other mysteries, and often draw on her memories of growing up in Appalachia. "I get a lot of personal gratification thinking of those people who don't get any attention in the world and making them really valuable in my fiction-making them absolutely shine with their beauty."

She lives with her many pets in the Pacific Northwest.

Mark Teague is an award-winning children's book author and illustrator whose books include the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling How Do Dinosaurs... series, the LaRue series, FIREHOUSE!, FUNNY FARM, and many other humorous picture books. Mark lives in New York state with his wife and their two daughters.

Reviews

Gr 1-3-Pink and portly, this personable pig makes his eighth appearance for beginner readers. Poppleton's fans will need no urging to join in his concern over fallen icicles, his exacting venture into the art of sculpture, and the joys of a surprise birthday party catered by his loving friends, while children meeting him for the first time will likely scamper to the library to find the earlier titles. Teague's sunny illustrations enhance Rylant's cheery text, and youngsters can only sigh with satisfaction when Poppleton makes no birthday wish because "He had everything already." A delightful choice.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
