About the Author

Frances Temple teaches the primary grades at the Children's Hours School in Geneva, New York, and freelances with drama and writing workshops for community groups. Urged on by her students, who sometimes ask, "Why don't you finish any of your stories?", she is writing a novel for young adults about a thirteenth-century pilgrimage.

Kathleen Juntunen has been an elementary classroom teacher since 1960. She writes poetry, keeps journals, and has written three stories for children. She is presently Teacher Consultant for Writing in the Birmingham public schools in Birmingham, Michigan, where she conducts writing workshops for teachers and does demonstration teaching in K-5 classrooms.

Charles Temple teaches future teachers at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, New York, where he chairs the Education department. He writes songs for and with elementary-school students. He has done pioneer research on invented spelling with Edmund Henderson at the University of Virginia and is now investigating the ways children think about stories. He has written three other books on the teaching of reading and writing and has recently returned from a lecture tour in Portugal, where he was a Fulbright scholar.
