About the Author

Margaret Bloom lives with her family in a little cottage beneath the great oak trees of Northern California. She has a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology, has worked as a professional puppeteer and she loves making peg dolls with her children. It gives her the greatest joy to inspire children and families everywhere to create, to play and to dream.

“This is a great book to enjoy with the kids, as a parent or teacher, but even if you don’t have children, let yourself reconnect with your inner child and fall in love with this magical world of tiny wooden characters. I don’t have any children, but I confess, I’m completely enchanted by these sweet little dolls, and at some point I’m going to cave in to the need to create my own little Gnome, or Bear, or Bunny, or Dragon, or Owl, or maybe even a Cat!” - Dawn Bevins, UK Handmade
