About Elizabeth Cody Kimmel

"I have loved both dogs and snow since I was a child," says Elizabeth Cody Kimmel. "As a little girl, I lived on a very remote road, and our house was surrounded by woods. When it snowed, I used to venture outside with our dog, my imagination creating an adventure story for us both to live. Balto's story is exactly the kind of tale I might have created - but it is true!"

Ms. Kimmel lives with her husband and daughter in Cold Spring, New York. Balto and the Great Race is her third book, and her second with a lot of snow in it.
