Loreen Leedy is the author/illustrator of many children’s books, including It’s Probably Penny and the best-selling Measuring Penny. Born in Wilmington, Delaware, she majored in art in college but wasn’t sure what kind of artist she wanted to be. She started out making jewelry in the shape of pigs, cats, dragons, and other animals, and then one day she started making book characters out of her animals. She is skilled at making concepts fun and accessible to children, and often speaks at conferences and in schools throughout the United States. She lives with her husband in central Florida.
