Cedar Pruitt's debut picture book, FIRE FLIGHT, lyrically explores one owl's escape from a California forest fire - right into a firefighting helicopter, where it made headlines when it took the co-pilot seat. Themes of climate change, nature and technology are woven through this imagined view of a real-life event.
Cedar's second picture book leads us into the woods of wartime France with the boys who found a hidden cave - and made one of the greatest discoveries of all time. The children's profound discovery of the 17,000-year-old paintings of Lascaux, during a time of horrific world war, captured the global imagination and reshaped our understanding of humanity.
A professional consultant and facilitator in DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion), Cedar Pruitt lives outside of Boston, MA with her family.
