Anna DiVito grew up in Montclair, NJ. When she was very young, she wandered into the library's children's area and was awed by the simple beauty of putting words and pictures together.
She has been obsessed ever since.
A graduate of the Pratt Institute, with a degree in Communication Design, she has held various jobs including architectural illustrator, emergency room clerk, hors d'oeuvres caterer, children's magazine and book designer, children's illustrator, author, and book developer.
The Simon and Schuster marketing department nominated Anna's book, Annie Oakley Saves The Day, for the 2005 Scott O'Dell Award for historical fiction. Her work for the Dial/Puffin series, Why Does Your Cat Meow, et al., received an ALA Pick of the List. A Lift-the-Flap for Puffin, Ghost Town Trick-or-Treat, had been named an IRA/CBC Children's Choice.
Anna lives in the lower Hudson Valley of New York where she can reach out of her studio window and almost touch the Appalachian Trail.
