Winner of the 1996 Caldecott Medal for OFFICER BUCKLE AND GLORIA, Peggy Rathmann originally intended to become a doctor. However, while enrolled in a pre-med program at St. Paul's Macalaster College, Rathmann realized she was more interested in the illustrations in her medical books than in the text. After leaving Macalaster, she studied art at the American Academy in Chicago, Atelier Lack in Minneapolis, and the Otis Parsons School of Design in Los Angeles. Her first book, RUBY THE COPYCAT, was published in 1991.
