About Barbara Roman
Barbara J. Roman is a multiple award-winning illustrator and graphic designer. Her illustration career began while living in New York City, working with leading book publishers. Though she has illustrated many picture books and young adult book covers, Carmine the Courageous Caterpillar is her debut as a picture book author. Brimming with whimsy and reassuring warmth, this book gives every indication Barbara will soon be just as well loved for her stories as she is for her illustrations. She can be found exploring the nooks and crannies in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, which she now calls home.
