Ann Ingalls passes the day exaggerating (writing fiction) or telling the truth (writing nonfiction). When given the choice between educating children or entertaining them with her writing, Ann chooses to do both! Ann has written nearly thirty other books for young readers. Before she was a children's writer, Ann taught elementary and special education classes and worked as a parent educator. In the classroom, Ann's students enjoyed rabbits, hamsters, gerbils, canaries, salamanders, fire belly toads, and what seemed like millions of fish. Ann lives in Kansas City, Missouri, with her husband, Winston. Please visit her at anningalls.com.
