Felicia Bond

Even as a child, Felicia Bond loved books and wanted to grow up to be an artist.  She still loves reading and enjoys illustrating children’s books.  She was born on July 18, 1954, in Yokohama, Japan, where she lived her first two years.  She grew up in Bronxville, New York, and Houston, Texas, with her four brothers and two sisters.

Felicia wrote and illustrated Poinsetta and Her Family in 1981, which was her first published book. She wrote and illustrated eight other books over the years.  She was the illustrator of over twenty other children’s books, including the popular If You Give a Mouse series.  She has won numerous awards for her work.  

Happy Birthday, Felicia!!
