Maida “Muff” Singer

Author. A Chicago native with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas, she joined the Peace Corps in 1965 and taught in a penal colony in the Philippines for two years. She returned to the United States and worked for 10 years as chief of staff for Howard L. Berman, member of the House of Representatives. In 1981, her first book, “The Mystery Reader’s Quiz Book”, co-written with Robert A. Wagner and Aneta Corsault, was published. She turned to writing children’s books in the late 1980s after the birth of her daughter. Over the next two decades, Singer wrote or co-wrote more than 35 books for toddlers and preschoolers, such as “Hello, Piglet!”, “What Does Kitty See?”, “Little Duck’s Friends”, “Look Around with Little Fish” and “Puppy to Love”. Many of her books came with a stuffed or squeaking version of the story’s main character. In addition to picture books, she wrote books for older children, including the best-seller, “The World’s Greatest Toe Show.” (bio by: Louis M.)
