Bio: Iza Trapani was born in Poland and moved to the US at the age of seven. Her relatives gave her a large Mother Goose Treasury, and she began learning English through those rhymes. Little did she know that someday her dream would come true and she would be adapting those rhymes and making picture books.
Iza is an award winning children’s book author and illustrator, with over twenty books to her credit. Her popular series of nursery rhyme extensions, including The Itsy Bitsy Spider, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Baa Baa Black Sheep are widely used in schools and libraries across the U.S. and abroad.
