Ryan T. Higgins
Ryan T. Higgins (ryanthiggins.com) is an author and illustrator who likes the outdoors and cheese sandwiches. He is NOT a grumpy old black bear, but he DOES like making books about one—starting with the New York Times best-selling Mother Bruce, which received the E. B. White Read-Aloud Award and the Ezra Jack Keats New Illustrator Honor. He also wrote and illustrated BE QUIET!, We Don’t Eat Our Classmates, Santa Bruce, Bruce’s Big Fun Day, and Peek-a-Bruce. Ryan lives in Maine with his wife and kids . . . and too many pets.
