is the award-winning author and illustrator of many books for young children. Her striking artwork — done in collage style with various materials and textures — is imaginative and unexpected. This trademark technique was developed through Ehlert’s childhood passion for “putting things together, cutting, stitching, pasting, [and] pounding.” Lois has incorporated her love of plants and animals into many of her stories, including RED LEAF, YELLOW LEAF (Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor Award; NSTA-CBC Outstanding Science Trade Book for Children) and FISH EYES: A BOOK YOU CAN COUNT ON (New York Times Best Illustrated Children’s Book, Parents’ Choice Honor Book).
    Lois is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, and the Layton School of Art. She has worked as an art teacher, illustrator and designer. Additionally, Ehlert has created toys, games, clothes, posters, banners, brochures, and catalogs. Lois now resides in Milwaukee.
