Just like Jackie Rabbit, the main character of this book, Vicki Riske has lived in the Arizona desertfor many years.
After a career as a learning designer, she now spends time writing children’s stories, and designing and making puppets. She loves hiking in the desert around Phoenix, looking high and low for polka dots and wildlife.
Vick is passionate about preserving the giant polka dot we all live on for future generations.
Her second book Grandma Bibi, published in December 2019, is a children’s book about shared memories and love. It tackles memory loss as a family issue and opens a dialogue for families to discuss what is happening to grandma or grandpa.
