About the Author
Andrea Perry was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, and raised on a steady diet of Dr. Seuss, which accounts for her love for all things rhymed (in fact, her writing group calls her the "meter maid"). She now writes in rhyme in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Jupiter, Florida, where she and her husband and two children divide their time. This is her first picture book.

Alan Snow is a well-known author and illustrator of children's books and has also worked in many fields of design and animation. He has written two novels, "Here Be Monsters! "and "Worse Things Happen at Sea!", both set in the wonderfully weird world of Ratbridge. He lives in Bath, England.
