OVERRIDE

Lauren Thompson

LAUREN THOMPSON loved ballet class when she was a child, although she never got the chance to participate in a ballet recital. In creating BALLERINA DREAMS, she drew inspiration from her own memories as well as from conversations with the girls, their parents, and their teacher, Joann Ferrara. Ms. Thompson worked as a children’s book editor for eighteen years before becoming a full-time writer. Her many picture books include POLAR BEAR NIGHT, which was a New York Times bestseller, and the MOUSE'S FIRST and LITTLE QUACK series, and most recently, THE APPLE PIE THAT PAPA BAKED. She lives in Brooklyn, New York with her husband and son.
