About the Author
"I'm not afraid of snakes," claims Rose-Marie Provencher. She and her childhood friend once kept a pet snake, and they missed him so much after he died that they saved his skin! A fan of all reptiles, she also looked after an alligator one summer. He got ahold of her finger and wouldn't let go, so she never alligator-sat again. The author of Mouse Cleaning, Rose-Marie Provencher lives in New Hampshire with two dogs, two chickens, and a goat.
