Guess who?: Roundup

Last week we shared our collection of author and illustrator (and critic!) photos and asked readers to name the subjects. A few remain unidentified — can you match the names to the faces?

Here are their names, in random order:

Paul Fleischman
Christopher Myers
Helen Oxenbury
Cynthia Rylant
Marilyn Nelson
Caralyn and Mark Buehner (we think!)
Katherine Paterson
Lynne Rae Perkins
Jerry Spinelli
Barry Moser
Michael Rosen
Roger Sutton
Bill Martin Jr
Arthur Geisert
Peter Sís
Brian Pinkney
Martha Brooks
D.B. Johnson
Walter Dean Myers

We’ll reveal who’s who tomorrow!

  1. Oh, hey there, Roger, I think I still recognize you!

    And some of the others, now that you’ve given me names. I only recognized Sis, Paterson, and Geisert without the hints.
