Laura Dronzek

Laura Dronzek is a painter whose work has been exhibited nationally. Her picture books include the acclaimed Birds by Kevin Henkes, Oh! by Kevin Henkes, White Is for Blueberry by George Shannon, Tippy-Toe Chick, Go! by George Shannon, Moonlight by Helen V. Griffith., and It Is Night by Phyllis Rowand.

The award-winning, bestselling husband-and-wife team of Kevin Henkes and Laura Dronzek collaborated on last year's When Spring Comes, which received this starred review from School Library Journal:

Henkes and Dronzek once again perfectly capture the quiet wonder of the natural world, as they did in Birds and Oh! …Dronzek’s vivacious acrylic illustrations, their bright colors emphasized by the thick black outlines, complement Henkes’s spare but lyrical prose. A must-have, joyful seasonal title for the youngest listeners.

In the Middle of Fall, the companion book to When Spring Comes, will be available in September.

Laura Dronzek lives in Madison, Wisconsin with her family.
