Meet our books' authors:  Carol Paterno and Doris Tomaselli.  Doris is also the illustrator.

Ms. Paterno, having taught all ages of children from preschool through high school, is a music educator, singer and writer with both a bachelor's and a master's degree in music education. She has taught in public schools as well as privately in her studio.

Ms. Tomaselli's hilarious watercolors in Slippery Soap! captured the calamitous, sudsy situation of the story. She brings the same wackiness to the art in Swan Pond.  She is the author of thirteen children's books (including two Fisher-Price bestsellers); has art directed, painted and designed hundreds more; plus two biographies. She holds degrees in English Writing, Fine Arts, and Graphics and has had an extensive career working in a variety of creative environments.

Ms. Tomaselli and Ms. Paterno continue to collaborate on more books for Daffodil Press.
