Biographical Sketch

Margaret Read MacDonald was born January 21, 1940, in Seymour, Indiana. During college she became interested in storytelling, and as a result became a children's librarian and storyteller. With this background, it is no surprise that many of her own books are grounded in folktale and storytelling tradition. Her work has won her several honors and awards.
