Notes: Wood's first memories of storytelling were in Sarasota, Florida, where her father was employed by Ringling Brothers Circus, commissioned to repaint the big top and sideshow murals. As Audrey became friends with the characters of the circus, she heard stories about them from the family of "little people" who lived next door to her family. She was the first of three girls. As the oldest, she began her gift of storytelling with her younger sisters. She would use her parents' art books and make up stories about the paintings. By the time she was in fourth grade, her ambition was to become an author/illustrator. Wood uses the medium of children's literature to practice the disciplines of art, music, drama, dance, and writing. Her unique work creates a sense of imagination and excitement. She loves step-and-repeat stories for the "music of language". An example of this would be her famous book, The Napping House. Her husband, Don, is the illustrator of many of her books. They began collaborating on children's literature seven years after their marriage, their first book together entitled Moonflute. Since its publication, Don has illustrated nearly 20 of her books. Their son, Bruce Robert Wood, was also an illustrator, which makes art a fifth-generation tradition in the family.
The paintings in this booj were done in oil on Bristol board.
