Consie Powell loves to “muck around in nature’s lovely untidy places,” as she puts it, and then to illustrate the complexities of nature. She has spent
time in all of the habitats illustrated in this book, her trusty sketchbook and a small tin of watercolors in hand. She has illustrated a dozen children’s picture books about nature, seven of which she also wrote. Although she grew up in sunny southern California, Consie now lives in the far north woods of Minnesota with her husband and their Newfoundland dogs. Visit her website at www.ConsiePowell.com.
