Biographical Sketch

Karla Kuskin was born July 17, 1932, in New York City. She began writing and drawing at an early age. Her first book, Roar and More , was written as part of the requirement for her B.A. degree from Yale U. She had to create and print the book using a small press at the university. The book was subsequently published successfully. Themes for her books grew out of her New York childhood and her own experiences as a parent. Many of her books are self-illustrated, and she thinks of herself primarily as an illustrator. Her work has won many awards and honors.
