About the Author

Arlene Gerrity loves to read to children. She has been reading to the children of the Scranton School District (PA) and other local school districts since 2005. After her retirement of ten years as a teacher's aide, she published her own children's book entitle “The Tale of Chicken Noodle and Rabbit Stew Number Two”. Unique is the first book she both wrote and illustrated. Arlene and Margaret met in 1995 and became good friends. It took the two friends over a year to finish this beautiful story, but they considered it a labor of love. Margaret Mary Campbell is a person born with albinism. She is a retired elementary school teacher. Since retiring she has been actively working with children who also have albinism. Because of many myths, and negative portrayals of albinism in the media, she felt a need for children to see an honest and accurate images of albinism in literature and the media. She partnered with her friend Arlene as a "technical advisor" in the writing of the story of "Unique", a little Robin born with the inherited genetic condition of albinism.
