She lives in California. Sylvia A. Rouss is the award-winning author of the popular "Sammy Spider" series and many other children's books. Also an early childhood educator, the children in her classroom have been her inspiration. This is her second collaboration with her daughter Shannan Rouss, author of Easy for You (Simon & Schuster). Ann Iosa is a graduate of Paier School of Art where she studied illustration and design. Her whimsical, colorful artwork reflects her love of nature, children and animals.

She lives in Connecticut in the middle of the woods surrounded by wildlife, with her husband and two grown children.


"When Miss Sharon asks her students to bring their favorite fruits to help deco-rate the school sukkah, most children's con-tributions are small, light, and easy to hang. Michael's watermelon, however, presents an interesting problem. The class tries a variety of creative solutions to hang it in the sukkah, but none is successful. The playground swings give Michael an idea - and it works!

This unusual Sukkot story artfully blends facts about the holiday (more detail is provided in an afterword) with its depiction of the class working collaboratively to find a way to hang the watermelon. Their efforts--and the solution--present a unique introduction to engineering for young readers. Ann Iosa's illustrations complement Sylvia and Shannan Rouss' text, with facial expressions on the children and teacher that make the events described feel like a fun challenge." -- Jewish Book World
