Nancy Wride profiles children's writer Priscilla Maltbie for the Los Angeles Times.

Maltbie is a paraplegic, who was born with achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism. She's also the author of Picasso and Minou, a wonderful picture book published in 2005. Picasso and Minou is illustrated by Pau Estrada.

Maltbie is writing another book currently again featuring a cat and his famous partner. This time, the famous human is Mark Twain.

Malthbie lives, writes, and signs books in a nursing home. A fascinating and inspiring article.
