Author Biography

Peggy Kochanoff graduated from Cornell University with a degree in vertebrate zoology and spent a summer working at the Central Park Zoo in New York City. Eventually she settled with her husband and two sons on a tree farm in Nova Scotia, Canada. It was a perfect place to combine her love of nature with art, and she went on to do animal and nature illustrations for numerous clients. This is her third book for Mountain Press. She also illustrated There's a Beagle in My Bed, featuring her granddaughter and written by her eldest son. Peggy is delighted to be teaching her granddaughter to be a nature detective, too.
