Laura McGee Kvasnosky (1951- ) grew up in Northern California as one of five children in a newspaper family that provided the grist for many of her stories as a noted children’s writer and illustrator. She turned to children’s writing in mid life, and is best known for her series of “Zelda and Ivy” books featuring two fox sisters, the older and bossy Zelda, and her adoring younger sibling, Ivy. The series drew critical praise and fan loyalty for its fresh take on sibling rivalry. Kvasnosky’s honors include dual Golden Kite Honors Awards in 1999 from the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), and the American Library Association’s 2007 Theodor Seuss Geisel Award for “Zelda and Ivy: The Runaways” as America’s most distinguished book for beginning readers published that year. Her latest book, "Little Wolf's First Howling", the story of a wolf pup who can't help singing his own song, arrived in 2017 to further acclaim, winning the Margaret Wise Brown Honor Book Award for children's literature text, as well as numerous starred reviews and "best of the year's books" honors.
