Susan Holt Kralovansky, the “Library Lady,” began writing at a very young age. Fond of silly children’s poems, this not-so-tall Texan is thrilled to have worked at her dream job as an elementary-school librarian, where she was surrounded by both children and books. In addition to writing six nonfiction books for young readers, she has been a contributor to popular children’s magazines, including Turtle and Children’s Magic Window. She is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and the Texas Library Association. Her first book with Pelican, There Was a Tall Texan Who Swallowed a Flea, was well-received in classrooms all over the Lone Star State. For her achievements, Kralovansky was invited as the 2014 children’s author for the prestigious “Evening with the Authors” hosted annually by the Dr. Eugene Clark Library in Lockhart, Texas. Kralovansky makes her home in Cedar Park, Texas, with her son and her husband, who was very handy as an extra pair of hands in the making of this book. She was also assisted by her lovely cat, who made sure everything stayed in place.
