James Solheim is the author of It’s Disgusting and We Ate It!, illustrated by Eric Brace. Powered as a child by his grandmas’ Norwegian cooking—lefse and sandbakkels and søtsuppe (potato tortillas, sugar cookies, and sweet soup)—he now speaks Norwegian with his own kids and continues his family’s traditions. But his grandmas’ kindness is his biggest family tradition of all. He lives in Nebraska.
