JENNIFER PHELAN is fulfilling her childhood dream of drawing pictures all day. Her two kid’s books, Hey, Boy and The Log Driver’s Waltz are published by Simon & Schuster. Her third book is on the way with Penguin Random House. Her work can also be spotted moving (delightfully animated by Rewfoe for PBS) and all the other places illustration makes better. Other childhood dreams include becoming Leonardo da Vinci, an archaeologist, and a dancer. Jennifer waltzes in Toronto, where she lives with her artist husband, Gleb.
