BIO: Jackie Morris is the author and illustrator of many books that masquerade as children’s books, because they contain pictures. She lives in a small house by the sea that is held together with the webs of spiders because she is more interested in painting and writing than in housework, though she does like to make bread. She shares the house with numerous dogs and cats and children that come and go ( usually her own).
