Amy Krouse Rosenthal

Amy Krouse Rosenthal is a person who likes to make things:

Children’s books;
Grown-up books;
Short films;
Connections with the universe via interactive projects;
Something out of nothing;

According to The New York Times Book Review, her award-winning children’s books – which include Little Pea, Duck! Rabbit!, Spoon, One Smart Cookie and The Wonder Book – “…radiate fun the way tulips radiate spring: they are elegant and spirit-lifting.”

Amazon named her grown-up memoir Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life one of the top 10 memoirs of the decade.

And her short films, which include The Beckoning of Lovely, 17 things I made, ATM Always Trust Magic, and The Kindness Thought Bubble, have gained an international following thanks to the power of the web.

A graduate of Tufts University and The Sorbonne in Paris, Amy worked as an advertising copywriter and creative director before writing books. She lives online at
