Toni Buzzeo

Toni Buzzeo has authored twenty-eight picture books for children, including the 2013 Caldecott Honor Book and New York Times bestseller One Cool Friend, illustrated by David Small. She publishes both fiction and nonfiction. Endlessly enthusiastic, Toni draws on her career experiences as an elementary school librarian in crafting her books and speaking with audiences of children in schools and libraries. Toni lives in Arlington, Massachusetts, just downstairs from her two lovable grandchildren (endless sources of inspiration!) and their devoted parents.
