Meet the Author

No one can tell a story like Patricia Polacco! She says that she comes from a family of wonderful storytellers. "My fondest memories are of sitting around a stove or open fire, eating apples and popping corn, while listening to the old ones tell glorious stories about their homeland and the past."
