Local Author and Illustrator Carol Baicker-McKee

We're so proud of our local authors!

Pittsburgher Carol Baicker-McKee has a new book out.

Mimi is an exhuberant little-girl-piggy with a curly pink tail, a tiaria, and a pet roly-poly bug named Frank. Every morning, Mimi gives Frank his breakfast--a smige of banana. But one morning, Frank isn't there. Mimi nevertheless carries on. She even visits the library!

It's not just Mimi's personality that makes this piggy pop off the page. Carol Baker-McKee's 3-D illustrations make Mimi (and everything around her) bright and playful and irresistable. Carol explains here how she created Mimi.
