    Lucy Fitch Perkins was forty-eight when she was approached by a publisher friend who, impressed by her talents as both an illustrator and writer, which he knew through correspondence, urged her to write. He was so earnest that she thought of an idea for a children’s book the next morning, and she immediately set to work making sketches and preparing the idea for presentation. The publisher came to dinner at their house the next evening and she showed him the idea.  His response was immediate “go ahead and write it, and I want it”. That book was The Dutch Twins, the first in what became a long running and wildly popular series.  Here we publish another in the series 'The Eskimo Twins'.

    Astrid Sheckels, a native of the small farming town of Hatfield, Massachusetts, cannot remember a time when she was not telling or illustrating stories. Her illustrations are primarily done in watercolor. Starting with a storyboard, she creates countless sketches and pencil drawings in the process of developing the layout of the book. Astrid goes on location photo shoots to discover the right setting, and bases each of her illustrated characters on real people. Nic and Nellie is one of her most beloved books that she both wrote and illustrated. She also illustrated the award-winning titles The Scallop Christmas (2009) and The Fish House Door (2010), as well as Hope Somewhere in America (2012), Black Cloud (2012), and Tennessee Rose (2012). Astrid has won the Archibald MacLeish Prize for Art and the Medici Award in the Visual Arts. Astrid now lives in Greenfield, Massachusetts.
