Anne Rothman-Hicks and Kenneth Hicks

Anne Rothman-Hicks is a graduate of Bryn Mawr College where, in 1969, at a college dance, she met a student from Haverford named Kenneth Hicks. They have been together pretty much ever since, getting married, having children, writing books, making art, and generally conspiring to live lives that are happy, creative, and good.

In Ken and Anne’s first tween book, THINGS ARE NOT WHAT THEY SEEM, Jennifer and James find a pigeon in Central Park whose foot was caught in a bit of string attached to a fence. Only this pigeon was actually a man before he was turned into a pigeon over a hundred years earlier. Jennifer and James with the help pf two friends try to help the pigeon (named Arthur Whitehair) turn back into a man before a certain hawk (by the name of Malman) captures and eats him instead.

REMEMBERING THOMAS is the sequel to THINGS ARE NOT WHAT THEY SEEM. Malman returns, threatening the world with evil, and Whitehair is again causing trouble as Jennifer and James travel back in time to Manhattan during the Revolutionary War in order to thwart Malman and rescue Whitehair.
