Once upon a time there was a boy who presented a well-thought out proposal for his teacher, Ms. Johnson, convincing her that bringing a pterodactyl to school would be a good idea. The boy is back, and this time he has several reasons why bringing a woolly mammoth to the library would be advantageous to the librarian, Ms. Reeder, and the library’s patrons.

Lois Grambling grew up in Union, New Jersey. Her first vivid childhood memory is of getting her very first library card. She remembers not being able to write, but the town librarian was kind enough to say she could "read the name that was printed on the application."With that wonderful new card in her hand, Lois found a whole new world opened up to her. Every Saturday was spent in the children's section in the library where she would load up on armfuls of books to take home with her--a habit she has not yet kicked.Lois grew up and after graduating with a B.A. from Drew University in Madison, New Jersey, she received her Masters from the University of Oklahoma in Norman, Oklahoma. She became a teacher and later, after some retraining, a school social worker in the Binghamton City School District.As a writer, Lois was a late bloomer. It wasn't until her first grandchild, Lara, was born that Lois was inspired to put pen to paper. She had so many things she wanted to tell her very special granddaughter. So, every Saturday, just like checking children's books out of the library, she wrote and wrote and wrote.Her stories spring from her memories of her childhood, the childhood's of her two sons, and now of her grandchildren."Watching your words being transformed into a book," Lois says, "is an exhilarating and magical experience. But an even more exhilarating and magical experience is to someday, somewhere see some child reading that book! Trust me! That will truly make your cup runneth over!"Lois lives in Binghamton, New York, with her husband.
