And what is the scriptoria?<P>Author, Anita Prieto was born in New Orleans and now lives in Metairie, Louisiana. She spent 33 years as a classroom teacher, school principal, and area superintendent. Anita is the author of "P is for Pelican: A Louisiana Alphabet."<P>Ren&#233; e Graef's illustrations are easily recognized from the Kirsten books in the "American Girl"collection, as well as the "My First Little House" series.
