Digger and Daisy Star in a Play
by Judy Young
Meet Digger and Daisy! They are brother and sister. These dogs like to explore their world and see new things. Sometimes they agree with each other. Sometimes they disagree. But no matter the situation, one thing always stays the same--their love for each other. In playful, simple stories written especially for the K-1 audience, author Judy Young explores the dynamics and nuances of the sibling relationship. In Digger and Daisy Star in a Play, after being cast in a theatrical production, the siblings take different approaches in preparing for the stage. Digger is worried he will forget his lines, while Daisy is confident she doesn't need to rehearse.

Author: Judy Young
Judy Young remembers writing a poem for her grandmother when she was about ten. Her grandmother encouraged her to keep writing, and Judy did! Judy is the author of over twenty children’s picture books and her first children’s novel, Promise. Judy’s books are used extensively in the public schools and have received numerous awards and honors. One of the most cherished is hearing LeVar Burton read A Pet for Miss Wright for Reading Rainbow Storytime Video to celebrate National Reading Month. Another, was watching as R is for Rhyme, A Poetry Alphabet was performed by the University of Utah’s Creative Dance Program.
Judy received her MA in Speech and Language Pathology from the University of Tulsa and formerly worked in the public schools for 20 years. Her first book was published in 2001, and in 2004, Judy left the schools to fulfill her dream of writing full-time. A frequent speaker at schools, children’s lit fests and professional educational conferences, Judy’s firsthand experience in the schools makes her programs not only entertaining, but directly related to school curriculum.
Judy resides in the Bear River Range near Mink Creek, Idaho, with her husband, Ross, a professional artist, who illustrated two of Judy’s books. They have two grown children and several dogs. In her spare time, Judy enjoys hiking, fishing and gallivanting around the country in “Arlo,” the Young’s traveling studio.
Illustrator: Dana Sullivan
Dana Sullivan was born in Los Angeles, California, and has been drawing on scraps of paper and in the margins of math tests for as long as he can remember. Since he has always loved reading and drawing, he got a degree in Comparative Literature from the University of Washington and then one in Graphic Design from Seattle Central Community College. Dana was the Creative Director at Costco Wholesale for 16 years until he realized he wasn’t being all that creative. He quit to become a full-time writer and illustrator of children’s books. He tutors reading at the neighborhood elementary school, is the resident on-the-spot cartoonist at 826 Seattle (one of the national chapters of Dave Eggers’s 826 Valencia nonprofit organization), and is on the advisory board of the SCBWI Northwest Chapter. Dana has been married to the same lovely Vicki for 30 years and still misses the real Ozzie, an incredibly stubborn and wonderful Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler) named Max, who continues to inspire. They live near Seattle, Washington, with their dog, Benny
