About the Author

Janet Wilson decided at age 29, after her boys were off to school, that she wanted to become a professional artist. After a few years of hard work she graduated and was rewarded with an offer from Scholastic to illustrate a book. And the rest, as they say, is history. With a host of books to her credit, Janet is recognized for her realistic paintings which capture the feelings and mood of the characters and situations in the stories she is illustrating.
