Meet the Author

Lynn Reiser was born in Charlotte, North Carolina. When she was in school, she preferred drawing pictures to writing. Many years later, she created her first picture book, Bedtime Cat, with no words. Then an editor convinced her to add words, and the book was published! Now when Reiser creates a book, she has fun making the words and pictures work together to tell the story.
