There are big dogs, little dogs, curly dogs, dogs that sniff, and dogs that wag their tails. But only one dog will get biscuits from twins Jimmy and Janet -- or will it? Maybe dog biscuits aren't just for dogs after all!

Beverly Cleary was born on April 12, 1916. Her family lived on a small farm in McMinnville, Oregon, before moving to Portland. Ironically, this internationally known author of children's books struggled to learn how to read when she entered school. Before long however Cleary had learned to love books, and as a child she spent a good deal of her time in the public library. Cleary earned her first B.A. in 1938 from the University of California at Berkeley. Her second degree, a B.A. in library science, was bestowed by the University of Washington in Seattle in 1939. She worked for a short time as Children's Librarian in Yakima, Washington, before moving to California. Cleary began her writing career in her early thirties. Her stories and especially her characters, Henry Huggins and Ramona Quimby, have proven popular with young readers. Her books have been translated into fourteen languages and are available in over twenty countries. Some of her best known titles are Ellen Tebbits (1951), Henry and the Paper Route (1957), Runaway Ralph (1970), and Dear Mr. Henshaw (1983). Several television programs have been produced from the Henry Huggins and Ramona stories. Cleary has won many awards for her contributions to children's literature, including the American Library Association's Laura Ingalls Wilder Award in 1975, the Catholic Library Association's Regina Medal in 1980 and the John Newbery Medal in 1984. DyAnne DiSalvo-Ryan is an author and illustrator of more than forty picture books for children. She grew up in Brooklyn, New York and graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York. She likes to base the characters in her books on people she knows or people she has seen. Her works include Uncle Willie and the Soup Kitchen and City Green which were both Reading Rainbow selections and Notable Children's Trade Books in the Field of Social Studies. She also received a Congressional Commendation from the United States House of Representatives for her picture book Grandpa's Corner Store. She currently lives in a historical town right outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
