Carolyn Leiloglou grew up playing with lizards instead of dolls. Now she and her four kids enjoy spotting urban wildlife … except for the rattlesnakes. She is the author of Noah Green: Junior Zookeeper and the Garage Sale Pet, and her stories and poems have been published in children’s magazines such as Ladybug, The School Magazine, and Clubhouse Jr. Today, Carolyn can be found in her natural habitat, blogging about children's books, at housefullofbookworms.com.
