Phyllis Limbacher Tildes
Baby Animals Day & Night, Baby Animals Spots & Stripes, and Baby Animals Black and White are among the many books for children written and illustrated by Phyllis Limbacher Tildes. She currently resides in Savannah, Georgia. After graduating from RISD, Phyllis worked as a designer for Hallmark and as the assistant art director for Hopkins Art Center at Dartmouth College. She worked as a freelance graphic designer for nearly twenty-five years, designing everything from logos to opera and ballet promotional materials. Yet, she never forgot about her childhood dream of becoming an author/illustrator, and her first children's book, Counting on Calico, was published in 1995. She's published a number of more stories since then, ranging from pets and nature to ethnic tales.
