Natasha Wing is best known for her paperback series based on the popular poem "The Night Before Christmas." Her titles include The Night Before Easter , the original book in the series, and The Night Before Kindergarten , which has sold more than 1.5 million copies and has regularly appeared on bestseller lists since its publication in 2001 (Grosset & Dunlap). Wing's book Jalape o Bagels (Atheneum) is a favorite among elementary school teachers and students--now in its 23rd printing, it features a mixed Jewish and Mexican family. An Eye for Color: The Story of Josef Albers (Holt) tells the story of one of her neighbors when she was growing up in CT; it was an ALA Notable, a Junior Library Guild selection, a California Reading Association's Eureka! Honor Book Award, and a 2012 Grand Canyon Reader nominee, and has been translated into Chinese. Natasha lives in Fort Collins, CO, with her husband, Dan, and cat, Purrsia.
