Janet Perlman is the author and illustrator of four children's books. Cinderella Penguin, The Emperor Penguin's New Clothes and The Penguin and the Pea are all "penguinized" versions of well-known fairy tales. Her latest book, The Delicious Bug, is based on her animated film, Dinner For Two, which is not about penguins. And her satirical graphic novel, Penguins Behind Bars, became a TV special which she directed for Cartoon Network.
Janet Perlman has taught animation at Harvard, the Rhode Island School of Design, and Concordia University, and has given workshops in animation around the world. Now she works from her home studio in Montreal, Canada, where she creates most of her work on the computer, surrounded by poodle paintings and scary clown figurines.
