From the publisher
As a young child, Elise Primavera used to get in trouble for drawing on her clothes. She began to get serious about art during the summer after fifth grade. That summer, to get over an illness, she had to stay in bed. She passed the time by working through some learn-to-draw books. Soon, though, she was out of bed and back to her first love riding horses. Her goal was to ride in the Olympics.

After college, a visit to an art museum helped Elise Primavera choose to be an artist rather than a famous horseback rider. Today she works in a studio in her home, and she goes running instead of riding horses. She illustrates others' books as well as some she has written herself.
