Biography for Princess and the Peas and Carrots

Random House, Inc.
Harriet Ziefert has worn many hats and handles in her long and distinguished career(s) as an educator, book packager, author, and founding publisher of Blue Apple Books. She modeled this story's princess-y Rosebud character after her two granddaughters. And though she admits that, like Rosebud, she also needs certain things to be "just so," she likes carrots and peas just fine--though not under her mattress. The author lives in South Orange, New Jersey.
