Laura McGee Kvasnosky is one of five children and drew on her experiences as a middle child as well as on observations of her own two children to create the feisty fox sisters. "My youngest sister, Kate, is the true Ivy. When she was little, she had a doll that she adored. We convinced her that if she let us cut the doll's hair, it would grow back. Of course, we butchered it. Mom took it to the doll hospital and got a wig made."
