Rosemary Wells born January 29, is an American writer and illustrator of children's books. Wells has also written Noisy Nora , Yoko , the Voyage to the Bunny Planet series, a Christmas book called Morris's Disappearing Bag and a collected book of illustrations of Rodgers and Hammerstein songs. She has also published Red Moon at Sharpsburg , a historical novel featuring a young girl in the American Civil War. A common theme in Rosemary Wells' stories is the use of animal characters rather than humans. In the children's journal Stone Soup, Wells has stated that she writes using animals because it allows her to address sophisticated, controversial topics in way children can understand and adults can accept. For example, Yoko tackles the thorny topics of racism. It is about a young Japanese kitten who is ostracized when she brings sushi in her school lunch.
