Rudyard Kipling, Laura Driscoll - Authors

Rudyard Kipling was born in Bombay (now known as Mumbai), India, but returned with his parents to England at the age of five. Among Kipling's best-known works are The Jungle Book, Just So Stories, and the poems Mandalay and Gunga Din. Kipling was the first English-language writer to receive the Nobel Prize for literature (1907) and was among the youngest to have received the award. Migy Blanco started his career in London, where he lived for ten years after graduating from university. He then moved to the wilds of South America for some adventure before landing back in Frome, UK, with his wife and two children. Along the way, Migy has been imagining and developing his vibrant, magical, and bold art style. His eye-catching artwork has been featured everywhere from the Glastonbury Festival in the UK to the newsstands of Portland, Oregon. You can visit him at www.migy.com. Laura Driscoll is the author of numerous first chapter and beginning reader books, including We Are Twins and The Bravest Cat! She lives in central Connecticut with her husband and two children.
