Michael J. Rosen
Michael J. Rosen has written and edited some 90 books for children and adults, including The Cuckoo’s Haiku and Other Birding Poems, illustrated by Stan Fellows; and Chanukah Lights, illustrated and paper-engineered by Robert Sabuda. Many of his books, such as The Blessing of the Animals, and My Dog! A Kids’ Guide to Keeping a Happy and Healthy Pet are inspired by his lifelong experience with animals, whether as a college zoology major, a birdwatcher, or a dog trainer. Michael J. Rosen lives on 100 forested acres in central Ohio.
