Catharine O'Neill, a native of Toronto, Ontario, began her career as a cartoonist for magazines and newspapers. This later led to her creating humorous illustrations for more than a dozen children's books in the United States and in Canada, including her own Mrs. Dunphy's Dog and Harriet Lerner's What's So Terrible About Swallowing an Apple Seed? She now lives in Ithaca, New York, with her daughter and dog, both funny in their own way.
