About the Author

Patricia MacLachlan's books range from picture books to chapter books and novels, and in all categories her reviews and her sales are consistently strong. She won the Newbery Medal for her book Sarah, Plain and Tall, and, more recently, wrote a picture book biography of Henri Matisse, The Iridescence of Birds, illustrated by Hadley Hooper. She based Barkus on the imagined adventures of her too-friendly neighbour's dog. She lives in Massachusetts.
