Katie Bagli's fondness for flora and fauna began at a very early age. She would share her mother’s enthusiasm in pottering around and nurturing a balcony garden. As a child, she would delight in rearing caterpillars and watch them metamorphose into butterflies. Katie has several published titles to her credit, nearly all of which are on various subjects of nature. She writes for children’s magazines too. Besides writing Katie also enjoys illustrating her own books.Her books have been recommended for general reading in schools and also to college students of zoology.
