About Carrie Sharkey Asner

Carrie’s love of children’s books– and the delight they bring– started long ago. The eldest of six children, Carrie grew up reading to her younger siblings. She read everything they handed her, from Grandma’s copy of “Winds in the Willows” to “The Monster at the End of This Book, Starring Lovable, Furry Old Grover.”
