Mary Newell DePalma

According to School Library Journal, Mary Newell DePalma's book The Strange Egg "underlines issues important to children: cooperation, friendship, using your individual talents, and nature. The illustrations are as unique as the plot." 

Mary lives in Boston with her husband and two children. They let her knit and draw all she wants because she is absolutely no help with their math homework.
