Elizabeth MacLeod has written many books for children, including Why Do Cats Have Whiskers? Ever since she first rode a horse at summer camp, Liz has been swept away by these wonderful animals. She immediately fell in love with their smell and the feel of their velvety noses. When Liz was a little girl, she wanted a Shetland pony - she still loves their shaggy coats!
