Meet the Author

Alma Flor Ada grew up in Cuba. Her family lived in a “wonderful big old house.” If she went out the front door, she was on the street. But if she went out the back door, she found a special world that sparked her imagination. It was a world of fruit trees and animals. There were cows and a horse and a river full of life: herons, fish, bullfrogs, and turtles.
