Liz Garton Scanlon is an award-winning poet and author who lives just up Interstate 35 in Austin, TX.
In 2010, All the World was named a Caldecott Honor Book. The award actually went to the illustrator, Marla Frazee -- but it was Liz who wrote the text that inspired Marla's amazing drawings. You can find All the World at SAPL in both English and Spanish.
Liz's new book Noodle and Lou, illustrated by Arthur Howard, is the tale of an unexpected friendship between a worm and a bird. You can find Noodle and Lou in the collection at SAPL. You can also find it, for a limited time, in boxes of Cheerios as part of their Spoonfuls of Stories project which is now celebrating its tenth anniversary.
