About the Author and Illustrator

Jerry Pallotta Back in 1985, Jerry Pallotta was an insurance salesman, looking for creative ways to teach his children their ABCs. At the age of 32, his imaginative ideas led to him to write and publish his very first book, The Ocean Alphabet Book. He has since created more than 20 alphabet books, and has expanded into creative books for teaching basic math as well.
