Review “A triumphantly moving book.”–Kirkus Reviews, pointer review”[Yolen] adds much to understanding the effects of the Holocaust, which will
reverberate throughout history, today and tomorrow.”–SLJ, starred review’When

About the Author Born and raised in New York City, Jane Yolen now lives in
Hatfield, Massachusetts. She attended Smith College and received her master’s
degree in education from the University of Massachusetts. The distinguished
author of more than 170 books, Jane Yolen is a person of many talents. When
she is not writing, Yolen composes songs, is a professional storyteller on the
stage, and is the busy wife of a university professor, the mother of three
grown children, and a grandmother.Active in several organizations, Yolen has
been on the Board of Directors of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and
Illustrators, was president of the Science Fiction Writers of America from
1986 to 1988, is on the editorial board of several magazines, and was a
founding member of the Western New England Storytellers Guild, the Western
Massachusetts Illustrators Guild, and the Bay State Writers Guild. For twenty
years, she ran a monthly writer’s workshop for new children’s book authors. In
1980, when Yolen was awarded an honorary Doctor of Law degree by Our Lady of
the Elms College in Chicopee, Massachusetts, the citation recognized that
“throughout her writing career she has remained true to her primary source of
inspiration–folk culture.” Folklore is the “perfect second skin,” writes
Yolen. “From under its hide, we can see all the shimmering, shadowy
uncertainties of the world.” Folklore, she believes, is the universal human
language, a language that children instinctively feel in their hearts.All of
Yolen’s stories and poems are somehow rooted in her sense of family and self.
The Emperor and the Kite, which was a Caldecott Honor Book in 1983 for its
intricate papercut illustrations by Ed Young, was based on Yolen’s
relationship with her late father, who was an international kite-flying
champion. Owl Moon, winner of the 1988 Caldecott Medal for John Schoenherr’s
exquisite watercolors, was inspired by her husband’s interest in
birding.Yolen’s graceful rhythms and outrageous rhymes have been gathered in
numerous collections. She has earned many awards over the years: the Regina
Medal, the Kerlan Award, the World Fantasy Award, the Society of Children’s
Book Writers Award, the Mythopoetic Society’s Aslan Award, the Christopher
Medal, the Boy’s Club Jr. Book Award, the Garden State Children’s Book Award,
the Daedalus Award, a number of Parents’ Choice Magazine Awards, and many
more. Her books and stories have been translated into Japanese, French,
Spanish, Chinese, German, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Afrikaans, !Xhosa,
Portuguese, and Braille.With a versatility that has led her to be called
“America’s Hans Christian Andersen,” Yolen, the child of two writers, is a
gifted and natural storyteller. Perhaps the best explanation for her
outstanding accomplishments comes from Jane Yolen herself: “I don’t care
whether the story is real or fantastical. I tell the story that needs to be
told.”copyright ? 2000 by Penguin Putnam Books for Young Readers. All rights
