More About 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's Christmas?
Biscuit's Christmas Jan 19, 2008
I ordered this for my granddaughter for Christmas - Unfortunately it didn't arrive until much later and I will keep it for next Christmas.
Don't buy it for the scratch and sniff. Jan 22, 2007
My son likes Biscuit books so I went ahead and got this book. But all the other reviews are correct. I don't know why they bothered with the scratch and sniff. Half of them don't smell at all and some of the ones that do, smell terrible. If there is a cheaper version of this book without the scratch and sniff, get that one instead.
Going, going....gone. Jan 9, 2002
This is a nice easy reader book for my 6 year old daughter. The scratch n sniff was a fun added bonus. It worked well & had very accurate scents...but only for one reading. The second time she picked up the book to read & scratch she was very disappointed that the scents were gone. Don't expect it to last long. But on the other hand, it's a fun book that she still enjoys reading. If you can find this book on sale--great. Don't bother otherwise.
Disappointing Scratch-and-Sniff Jun 28, 2001
Very disappointed in this scatch and sniff book. Smells were almost non-existent, very weak, and if you could smell the item, it didn't even smell like what it was supposed to be. Plus, the scratch and sniff area was about the size of a nickle, way too small for my toddler to easily scratch, let alone find. Don't waste your money.
Christmas antics Nov 29, 2000
This holiday book follows the little girl, Biscuit's owner, as she shows Biscuit the sights and smells of Christmas--the young readers can take part in the festive sights and smells by scratch and sniff stickers found throughout the book. The little girl and her friend, who brings her dog, Puddles, helps out with the Christmas fun and both pooches get so curious about what the girls are doing that messes are sure to follow. My toddler loves this book. Biscuit's Christmas is a good story to teach young children about the activities of the Christmas season.
