About the Author: Judy Sierra

I took a roundabout path to becoming a children s author Out of college I did temporary work in offices and libraries, while at night, I wrote poetry and made strange life forms from cloth When I teamed up with a puppeteer, Bob Kaminski my husband , I was able to bring my cloth creations to life We began performing on the streets of San Francisco, at Renaissance fairs, and at schools After attending a workshop on Balinese shadow puppetry, we traveled to Bali and Java to learn ancient techniques from modern masters, and we adapted material from American folklore to the shadow screen I became so fascinated by the power of ancient myth and folktale to engage a modern audience that I enrolled in the Folklore and Mythology Program at UCLA, where I received my PhD While I was a student there, I attended a talk by the author illustrator Uri Shulevitz, and heard him say that a picture book is like a small theater A puppet theater is also a small theater, I thought I can do that My first children s books were adaptations of folktales, and soon, I was able to incorporate my lifelong habit of writing poetry into my workCurrently , I live in Portland, Oregon, with my husband I divide my writing time between children s books and a long term project on folktales, grandmothers and cultural evolution.

    I liked the concept of taking nursery rhymes and making them creepy The pictures reminded me of those old Garbage Pail kids, which I liked But the rhymes themselves tended to fall flat the book tried so hard to make words rhyme, sometimes it took a lame turn, at the expense of the creepiness and or even coherence.
