About the Author
Polly Horvath is the author of many books for young people, including "Everything on a Waffle", "The Pepins and Their Problems", "The Canning Season" and "The Trolls". Her numerous awards include the Newbery Honor, the National Book Award for Young People's Literature, the Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor, the Vicky Metcalf Award for Children's Literature, the Mr. Christie Award, the international White Raven, and the Young Adult Canadian Book of the Year. Horvath grew up in Kalamazoo, Michigan. She attended the Canadian College of Dance in Toronto and the Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance in New York City. She has taught ballet, waitressed, done temporary typing, and tended babies, but while doing these things she has always also written. Now that her children are in school, she spends the whole day writing, unless she sneaks out to buy groceries, lured away from her desk by the thought of fresh Cheez Whiz. She lives on Vancouver Island with her husband and two daughters.

Sophie Blackall is an Australian illustrator whose previous books include "Ruby's Wish" and "Meet Wild Boars". She also illustrates the Ivy & Bean series. Sophie lives in Brooklyn, New York and can be visited at sophieblackall.com.
