About the Author
Kate McMullan has written more than 100 books for children. Yes, that's 100! These books include "School! Adventures at the Harvey N. Trouble Elementary School", "I Stink!" and "I'm Dirty!" She has said that when she writes, she thinks back to her grade-school days--"the yucky lunches" and "the torture of gym class for the non-athletic." But she can't remember a time when her bus got stuck in a ditch or if she ever had a cat named Moose. She does remember that she always loved to read, and as soon as she could, she read her way through the children's shelves at her local library. When she grew up, she taught fourth grade in inner-city Los Angeles and on an American Air Force Base in Germany. Reading to her students, she started to wonder if she could write for kids. More than 100 books later, it appears she can! McMullan lives in Sag Harbor with her husband and collaborator, the illustrator Jim McMullan.
