About the Author
She now makes her home in Austin, Texas and her special interests include animals (especially cats -she has six!), reading, dancing, and cooking. She has published over twenty books, including Tumble Bumble (Front Street, 1996), which is the first in several years she has written as well as illustrated. Tumble Bumble's playful rhyming text reflects the same vibrancy and energy that distinguishes her art, and her illustrations, as always, reveal a keen appreciation for what children like. Felicia Bond's work has captured the hearts of a generation of children and their parents -Tumble Bumble is another enchanting creation that is bound to become a much-loved favorite. Tumble Bumble was featured as a Best Book of 1996 in the December issue of Parents magazine. Ms. Bond says, "There was virtually nothing that didn't excite me in the art I experienced as a child -everything from the expressive free-spirited paintings by Ludwig Bemelmans in his Madeline books to the graphic and verbal wit and understatement of Charles Schulz in his Peanuts strip - I loved it all. I couldn't wait to grow up and be an artist!"
