Happy Birthday, Cynthia Voigt

Born in Boston on February 25, 1942, Cynthia Voigt was the second of five children.  From the time she started high school, she wanted to be an author.   She has successfully reached that goal  with the publication of  nearly 50 juvenile and young  adult books.  She has also written a couple of dog stories for younger readers.   Angus and Sadie appeals to 3rd-5th graders and The Rosie Stories for K-2nd.
