Thanks for visiting my website!

I am an illustrator and author of children's picture books.

I'm so happy to say that my latest book, Cricket Song, out March 1, from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, was listed by Kirkus Reviews as a Best Book of 2016, and received three starred reviews from Booklist, Kirkus Reviews, and the School Library Journal!

"The language is as lulling as an evening breeze, but it's the illustrations that make this book truly extraordinary. Those who have experienced Hunter's earlier titles, including Possum's Harvest Moon (HMH, 1996), will be familiar with her gift for depicting the natural world. Here her watercolor and ink renderings of the landscape and the sea, the animals, and the purple-gold sunset clouds are an exquisite journey into the most restful part of the day."
School Library Journal (starred review)

"Sensitive bedtime winner guaranteed to enchant drowsy kids."
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"With its absorbing illustrations and its satisfying, soporific story, this is an excellent bedtime book."
Booklist (starred review)

In the meantime, I am working on my next book, Possum and the Summer Storm, the third of the Possum books, due out in Spring 2018 with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. This time Possum has trouble with high water and is helped out by some of the better architects in his animal neighborhood.
