Virginia L. Kroll, the author of dozens of picture books for young readers as well as hundreds of magazine pieces, has established herself as a versatile and prolific writer since beginning her career in 1992. So plentiful is Kroll's imagination and output that she writes under two pseudonyms as a way of diffusing concern over her immense productivity. Her subject matter ranges from domestic tales of sisters, to multiracial and multicultural topics, to the environment and religion. Unafraid to take chances in her work, Kroll writes from the point of view of young African Americans in Masai and I, Woodhoopoe Willie, Pink Paper Swans, and Faraway Drums and from the point of view of a blind girl in Naomi Knows It's Springtime, a Japanese girl in A Carp for Kimiko, and an Hispanic youth in Butterfly Boy. Writing under the pseudonym Melrose Cooper, Kroll has also penned inspirational stories of family life and overcoming the effects of illness.
