About the Author: (1921–1992), American author of highly respected nonfiction, known especially for her outstanding reference works on dinosaurs. Before becoming a writer, Sattler was a teacher, librarian, mother, and scout leader. The subjects of her first books and magazine articles were puzzles (including several books of Bible puzzles) and crafts. Sattler believed that puzzles stimulated children’s minds, and that most children could learn to work with their hands and be creative if given a few designs to get them started. – From Answers.com
