Author Bio
Judy Blume
Judy Blume is one of the most popular authors of children's books. Her writings have won a large number of awards, many of which were selected and voted on by children. Blume is known for her honest and frank dealings with subjects important to emerging adolescents such as teenage sexuality, including masturbation and menstruation. Her presentation of these topics has also made her one of the most frequently censored authors for young people. In 1981, her desire to give young people the right to information access led to the creation of the Kids Fund, which gives grants to non-profit organizations that serve young people. She was given the Carl Sandburg Freedom to Read Award in 1984 and the American Civil Liberties Union Award in 1986. She also received the 1995 Margaret A. Edwards Award for Outstanding Literature for Young Adults--special mention was made of her book FOREVER.

James Stevenson is an author, cartoonist, and illustrator of picture books. He attended Yale University, after which he joined the U.S. Navy. He is widely regarded for his contributions as a cartoonist and editor at The New Yorker. Stevenson developed his first picture book--a collaboration with his 8-year-old son called IF I OWNED A CANDY FACTORY--in 1968. Since then, he has created such works as WE HATE RAIN! and THAT DREADFUL DAY, both of which feature his alter ego, Grandpa. This character entertains his grandchildren, Louie and Mary Ann, with incredible tales from his childhood. Stevenson has also illustrated the works of such authors as Jack Prelutsky and Charlotte Zolotow. James Stevenson was honored with the Christopher Award in 1987.
