About the Author
Roderick Townley's first book about Sylvie, "The Great Good Thing", was a Top-Ten Book Sense Pick, praised by "Kirkus Reviews" as "utterly winning...a book beloved from the first page." Its sequel, "Into the Labyrinth", was hailed by the "New York Times" as "a hopping fine read." The present volume completes the Sylvie cycle.

Mr. Townley has also published the novel "Sky", described by VOYA as "one hell of a book," as well as volumes of poetry, nonfiction, and literary criticism. He has two children, Jesse and Grace, and is married to author Wyatt Townley.
