About the Author
Jackie Urbanovic was thrilled to illustrate If You're Hoppy
, because her life experiences with dogs, cats, cockatoos, parakeets, frogs, chameleons, bees, and hamsters give her so much to draw upon. When it comes to flying, running, and the hoppiness of life, she knows what she's doing.
Jackie Urbanovic is also the creator of the New York Times best-selling series of books about Max the duck: Duck at the Door (an IndieBound Top Ten pick), Duck Soup (an Oprah Kids' Reading List selection), Duck and Cover, and Sitting Duck.
The artist grew up in southern Michigan, and now lives in Silver Spring, Maryland, with her two dogs, Max and Cuba, and her cat, Jesse Bear, who hops on her head every night.
