Elizabeth Spires is a critically acclaimed poet and children’s book author. She won a 1996 Whiting Award for her volume Worldling. Her children's books include With One White Wing and Riddle Road: Puzzles in Poems and Pictures, which offer children a chance to guess at rhyming riddles, using the illustrations and the snatches of poetry as clues. The Mouse of Amherst is perhaps Spires's best known children's book. The brief but beguiling tale is narrated by Emmaline, a mouse who has taken up residence behind the wall in Emily Dickinson's room.
