Short biography
Ms. Rathman was born and raised in St. Paul, Minnesota, where she attended the Atelier Lack, studying classical painting. Later, she attended the Otis Parsons School of Design in Los Angeles, where she studied children's book illustration with Barbara Bottman. Although Ms. Rathmann claims she was a shy child who never bit, Bootsie Barker liiks a lot like the artist's baby pictures. Booksellers voted Peggy Rathmann the "most promising new author" of 1991 in Publisher Weekly's annual Cuffie Awards. [adapted from Bootsie Barker bites (1992)
