Notes: Patricia Barber Polacco (born July 11, 1944, Lansing, Michigan) is an American author and illustrator. She struggled in school because she was unable to read until age 14 due to dyslexia; she found relief by expressing herself through art. Polacco endured teasing and hid her disability until a school teacher recognized that she could not read and began to help her. Her book Thank You, Mr. Falker is Polacco's retelling of this encounter and its outcome. She also wrote such books as Mr. Lincoln's Way and The Lemonade Club. Polacco spent her early life living in Oakland, California and Union City, Michigan. She attended Ohio State University and earned an M.F.A. and a Ph.D. in Art History. She did not start writing and illustrating her first children's book until she was 41 years old. Her work has won many awards.
