Join us to meet picture book author Gianna Marino, in celebration of her latest book, Splotch! Splotch the goldfish wasn't in his bowl when his boy got home from school. The only conclusion? He must have run away! When he mysteriously returns, all is well...except his distinctive spot is not in the same place. Maybe he's been changed by aliens? When the spot moves again, it's clear that something fishy is going on.
Gianna Marino was born in San Franciso, where she spent her early years galloping horses through Golden Gate Park. After graduation, she traveled to Africa and Asia, the South Pacific and Europe - and gained the nickname "Boomerang" from her friends. Though she still wanders the world, Gianna now lives in Northern California and works full-time writing and illustrating. Her other delightful picture books include Following Papa's Song, Meet Me at the Moon, Night Animals, and Too Tall Houses.
