Lisa Wheeler's first book was Wool Gathering: A Sheep Family Reunion, illustrated by Frank Ansley. In a starred review of Wool Gathering, Publishers Weekly said, "This waggish collection of poems about an unorthodox family get-together brims with enough visual and verbal fun to appeal to both parents and children alike."

She has also recently published Sailor Moo: Cow at Sea, with pictures by Ponder Goembel. Raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Lisa grew up rooting for the Steelers, but now cheers for the Lions from her family's home in the suburbs of Detroit. Fall, food, and football are three of her favorite things, so Thanksgiving is a happy holiday. Visit Lisa on the Web at
