The Hudson Valley based married couple of James and Lesa Cline Ransome, have worked together to build a family, to create a home and join forces to create wonderful children books. James is the illustrator, and Lesa is in charge of the words. The couple has collaborated on books such as Just a Lucky So and So: The Story of Louis Armstrong, FreedomSchool, Words Set Me Free: The Story of Young Frederick Douglass and Light in the Darkness.

The Ransomes' appearance is partially funded by Hoilday House.
