About Marsha Wilson Chall

See more books from this Author
Marsha Wilson Chall's first book, Up North at the Cabin, which was inspired by her own childhood summers on northern Minnesota lakes. Sugarbush Spring was also inspired by a beloved family tradition. Marsha is also the author of Rupa Raises the Sun (DK Ink), illustrated by Rosanne Litzinger. She lives with her two children, Lindsay and Robbie, in Minnetonka, Minnesota. Guy's first successful Christmas drawing was in third grade. His teacher, Mrs. Passarelli, had instructed the class to draw Christmas trees. Upon seeing Guy's drawing, she stopped him and told him, 'That's perfect, don't do anything more! Don't touch it anymore!' She held Guy's drawing up to the class as an example of how a Christmas tree should look - an encouraging first encounter with an art director.
