More About Alyssa Satin Capucilli & Pat Schories

Alyssa Satin Capucilli When I was a young girl growing up in Brooklyn, New York, the weekly trip to the public library with my mother and sisters, was much anticipated. I loved the quiet hush of the room, I loved the books on the shelves, I loved the books in my hands. I quickly became an avid reader and vowed to read every book from A to Z! Louisa May Alcott and Beverly Cleary were two of my favorite authors! Although I loved to imagine myself as different characters in books, I never imagined that the authors who created them were real people!

My home was filled with books and book lovers as well. And even though I spent much of my time writing, imagining, and creating stories, songs, poems, and puppet shows, I began focusing on story telling in another way; I began to tell stories through movement and dance, and spent numerous years dancing professionally. I still love to dance, but now I find that I enjoy inventing worlds through words even more.

Nowadays, my home is a small cozy cottage in Hastings on Hudson, New York. It is still filled with books and even more book lovers — my two children, Peter and Laura, my husband, Bill, and of course our lovable chocolate Labrador, Huckleberry! I find that I get many ideas and much inspiration from the long morning walks through the woods that I take with Huckleberry each day. Huckleberry especially loves the snow!

I hope you’ll enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoy writing them!

Alyssa Satin Capucilli currently resides in Hastings-On-Hudson, in the state of New York. Alyssa Satin Capucilli was born in 1957.

Reviews - What do customers think about Biscuit Wants to Play (My First I Can Read)?

My daughter loves Biscuit.  Mar 4, 2006
She borrowed the book from the school librarry and we somehow lost it. The librarian insisted I replace it - hence the order.
Biscuit lives on...
My first book review   May 21, 2005
The book Biscuit Wants to Play is about a puppy named Biscuit and two kittens. Biscuit wants to play with them, but they won't play with him. The kittens always want to play with something else. They run around and get stuck on a tree. Biscuit barks and barks until the girls come out and rescue the kittens from the tree

The author's purpose is to entertain the reader. When I was reading the book I was entertained by what the kittens and Biscuit did. Some parts in the story were funny. Another purpose is that the author taught me
that friend's are important. The author really entertained me I think the story was very cool and entertaining.

I think this author is a good author. I would recommend this story to my friend. I would read more stories from this author Alyssa Satin Capuclli.
A Good Book  May 17, 2005
This story is called Biscuit Wants to Play. This is a story about a puppy and two kittens. Biscuit wants to play with the kittens but they want to play with something else. When the kittens are stuck in the tree Biscuit helps them by barking a lot. Finally the girls come out to save the kittens.

The author's purpose is to entertain you when you read the book. The story was very entertaining when I read it. Another author's purpose is to teach the reader that friends are important.

Biscuit wants to play was a very fun and entertaining story. The author did a great job on the story. I would probably read more stories written by Alyssa Satin Capucilli because this story was good.
Biscuit and the Kittens  Sep 19, 2003
Biscuit meets a pair of kittens and decides he wants to play with them. But try as he might, the kittens pay no attention to him as they play and explore on their own.

But this changes when the kittens follow a butterfly up a tree and can not get down. Biscuit barks and gets the attention of The Girl In The Purple Sneakers and The Girl With Puddles and the little cats are rescued. We then see them playing with their helpful new friend Biscuit.

Another fine story. This one shows that while you may not always get your own way, things usually work out in the end. Filled with more adorable illustrations.
