Jane Yolen Adam Stemple Elizabeth Dulemba
New York Times bestselling children's author, Jane Yolen, and her son, Adam Stemple, have teamed up to write this gentle tale of a father introducing his daughter to the joys of bird watching using the "Crow, not Crow" method for distinguishing birds. Elizabeth Dulemba's delightfully warm illustrations bring the story to life.

Jane Yolen's books have been translated into over 20 languages and are popular around the world. Her husband, David Stemple, was both a well known bird recordist and a professor of computer science who taught his entire family how to identify birds. Many of Jane's books are about wildlife subjects, especially the winged kind. Jane lives in Hatfield, MA.
Adam Stemple is an award-winning writer of novels, short stories, graphic novels, and children's books. He is also an avid birdwatcher and the inventor of the "Crow Not Crow" method of teaching beginning birders.
Elizabeth Dulemba has always loved birds. As a kid, she used to run across back yards, flapping her arms, trying to fly (she swore she did). She later became a hang-glider pilot and flew off the top of Lookout Mountain in Tennessee. When not chasing birds, Elizabeth loves to draw, write, and teach. She has over two dozen titles to her credit, including her debut, award-winning novel, A Bird on Water Street - more birds. In the summers, she teaches in the MFA in Children’s Book Writing and Illustrating program at Hollins University in Virginia. She spends the rest of her time in Scotland, where she achieved an MFA in Illustration at the University of Edinburgh and is currently pursuing a PhD at the University of Glasgow.
