Celebrate Children's Book Week with Vermont author and illustrator Amy Huntington! Amy will be sharing her latest picture book, Monsters Like Us, with us during our virtual story time.
Monsters may look and act scary, but deep down they're not so different from you and me. They talk and giggle, they read and clean their rooms, and they have ENORMOUS chompers for...eating ice cream. This humorous book will have kids giggling and turning the pages as they discover that monsters aren't so scary after all--and discover their own inner monster!
Amy Huntington began painting in kindergarten, using the ends of her pigtails for brushes. She drew castles, bicycles, sleds, cats, and her siblings with the chicken pox. In summer she wrote poems while tucked in the branches of her favorite tree.
After college she settled in Vermont, exhibiting her paintings in various New England galleries. As a new mother, she fell in love with picture books and has never looked back. She fills lots of sketchbooks and writes lots of words. Some turn into books.
Her first picture book, One Monday, had both Huntington's words and her art. She has since illustrated numerous books, including Grandma Drove the Garbage Truck; Fresh-Picked Poetry: Poems from the Farmer's Market; and NINE: A Book of Nonet Poems. Huntington lives with her husband, two wild cats, some hens, and two sheep in an old Vermont farmhouse that needs lots of care.
