Kathleen Krull


When Kathleen Krull was fifteen, she was fired from her part-time job at the library. The reason? Reading too much - while she was supposed to be working. Luckily, she had other jobs, including church organ player, teaching piano lessons to kids in town, and selling doughnuts and cupcakes at a bakery. When she was ten, she wrote a book called Hair-Do's and People I Know, which starred strange girls, boys, nuns, trees, and lots of hair. It prepared her for the wacky picture book, Big Wig. Ms. Krull was the recipient of the 2011 Washington Post - Children's Book Guild Nonfiction Award for her body of work. She lives in San Diego.
