About the Author

Franny Billingsley quit practicing law in 1983 and moved to Barcelona, Spain, to recover. She brought all her favorite children's books with her, intending to do nothing but read and eat tapas, but she got hooked on writing instead. She now lives in her hometown of Chicago with her husband and two children and works in a children's bookstore. Well Wished is her first book. Leonid Gore moved to the U.S. from his native Russia in 1991. He has illustrated The Sugar Child, The Malachite Palace, Sleeping Boy, Who Was Born This Special Day?, The Secret of the Great Houdini, The Princess Mouse, and, most recently, Saints Among the Animals for Atheneum. He is also the author and illustrator of Danny's First Snow. Mr. Gore lives with his wife and daughter in Oakland, New Jersey, where monarchs are occasionally sighted.
