Biographical Sketch

Ramon Royal Ross was born the first of November, 1930, in Walla Walla, Washington. Growing up, Ross' family would journey into town for the children's weekly piano lessons and to select the next week's reading list. He matured in the books, majored in English at Central Washington University and would later go on to be a professor of education at San Diego State University. In 1968, his first book, Young American Basic Reading Program: Levels 1-10 , was published. He is best associated with Prune , a story of a prune's adventure and love-tale with a raspberry. He was awarded the 'Notable Work of Fiction' from the Southern California Council of Literature for Children and Young People in 1985.
