About the Author

Like Tony Sarg, Melissa Sweet loved to figure out how to make things move as a child.  (At age 6 she even took apart her marionettes to figure out how they worked.)  Today she still plays with simple materials and constructions in her brilliant mixed-media collage illustrations, for which she has won a Caldecott Honor and two NYTimes Best Illustrated citations.  She has also created many popular paper and baby gifts produced by eeBoo and recognizably Sweet.  She and her husband and dogs live in the charming seaport town of Rockport, Maine.
