Ame Dyckman

Ame Dyckman is short, loud, mischievous, and often dresses like her book characters. She’s also an award-winning, internationally-translated author of the fantastically illustrated picture books Boy+Bot, Tea Party Rules, the New York Times Bestselling Wolfie the Bunny, Horrible Bear!, You Don’t Want a Unicorn, and more. Ame lives in central New Jersey with her family, ridiculously big eared cat, book collection, closet full of hair dye colors, and of course, the characters from her stories. She’s currently building a homemade swimming pool for the protagonist of her latest release, Misunderstood Shark-mostly so she can have her bathtub back.
