About the author: Donna Barba Higuera grew up dodging dust devils in the oilfields of central California. She was a daydreamer, constantly blending life experiences and folklore into stories. Now she weaves them into picture books and novels. Higuera currently lives among the spiraling mists of the Pacific Northwest with her husband, four children, three dogs, two frogs, and hundreds of wild birds who flock to her backyard birdfeeders every day. El Cucuy Is Scared, Too! is her debut picture book. She is also the author of the middle-grade novels Lupe Wong Won't Dance (Pura Belpré Honor) and The Last Cuentista (Pura Belpré Award and John Newbery Medal).

Donna Barba Higuera además es autora de las novelas para jóvenes, Lupe Wong Won't Dance (el Honor Pura Belpré) y The Last Cuentista (el Premio Pura Belpré Award y la Medalla John Newbery).
