Author-illustrator Julie Kraulis knew Arlo would love to visit New York City. It is the perfect place for an adventurous armadillo (and adventurous author-illustrators, too)! Julie lives and works in Toronto, but her heart belongs to the world. She developed her wanderlust growing up in a few different places, and her travels always bring new inspiration. Julie is a stop and smell the roses kind of gal who loves to create. This is her third picture book; she is also the author and illustrator of Whimsy's Heavy Things and An Armadillo in Paris. The author lives in Toronto, ON.
