Ilona Tar

Ilona Tar is a writer and illustrator. The birth of her son and the success of her most recently illustrated children's books, 'Nonna's Gnocchi' and 'The Great $20 Adventure' inspired her to explore more of the wonderful world of children! She writes for the parenting section of the HuffPo, she's a crunchy mamma, an advocate of RIE parenting, with a focus on the outdoors and free play. Her son's birthday present this year is likely to be a set of cork blocks, followed by some pine cones and a sea shell. Woohoo!
