Read the story to discover all the fun of one special night. Colorful illustrations capture the imagination and complement the playful rhymes in this perfect bedtime story.
Alexandra Welch-Zerba was born on Nantucket Island, Massachusetts, and has always dreamed of writing a children's book. She has never actually seen a live unicorn or alligator in her room, but her daughter has over 100 beloved stuffed animals in hers, including her two favorites, Doggy and Teddy. Alexandra lives in Bow, New Hampshire with her husband, daughter and four cats.
Since Sheila was a very small child, her favorite pastime was to draw. After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design, she worked for a small art agency in Boston, Massachusetts, and then moved to Nantucket, Massachusetts, where she started her own commercial art business. With retirement came a move to Portsmouth, New Hampshire and time to experiment with watercolors, and design greeting cards for family and friends. Sheila now lives with her husband in Exeter, New Hampshire where she continues to enjoy working with pen, pencil and brush.
