Margaret Bloom lives with her family in a small yellow cottage beneath the great oak trees of Northern California. When she is not busy reading to her children, buttering toast or searching for lost socks, she spends her time writing, creating and finding inspiration in the world around her.
"This is a great book to enjoy with the kids, as a parent or teacher, but even if you don't have children, let yourself reconnect with your inner child and fall in love with this magical world of tiny wooden characters. I don't have any children, but I confess, I'm completely enchanted by these sweet little dolls, and at some point I'm going to cave in to the need to create my own little Gnome, or Bear, or Bunny, or Dragon, or Owl, or maybe even a Cat!"--Dawn Bevins (read her full review at UKHandmade.com)
