Biographical Sketch

Diane Goode was born September 14, 1949, in Brooklyn, New York. She became a writer and illustrator of children's books, and has received many honors and awards for her work, including a Caldecott Honor in 1983, for When I Was Young in the Mountains . She is best known for her anthologies of folktales and songs. She explains that her work method is to revise her sketches over and over, sometimes dozens of times, until she gets the effect she wants. This leads to her creating hundreds of sketches for each book she illustrates.
