    Correction - apparently, it WAS the same person. Don't know how I did that. (All the relatives' names match, as well as her birthplace.)

    Not to be confused with the children's book editor for Pippin Press NYC, who died in 2012, aged 82.

    So far, I've only found a few books of hers:

    It's Time to Go to Bed, aka But I'm Not Sleepy (illustrated by Robin Eaton), 1979
    Creative Puppetry in the Classroom (with Mary Freericks), 1979
    The Scariest Witch in Wellington Towers (illustrated by Margot Apple), 1981 ("Bonny's Halloween round as the scariest witch in her apartment building has a surprise ending.")
    Monster Knock-Knocks, 1984
