Three things we love about Dian Curtis Regan:
1. Dian has written more than fifty (50!) books for children, including our recent favorite, Barnyard Slam (illustrated by Paul Meisel), starring Yo Mama Goose and a cast of poetry-spouting farm friends.
2. She collects trivia about redheads. (Chick Trivia: In our next life we three chicks hope to be reincarnated as Carol Burnett, Lucille Ball, and Myrna Loy -- all fabulously funny redheaded ladies.)
3. She also collects walruses. Really.
Without further ado, we give you the lovely redheaded Dian Curtis Regan...
