About the Author
Margery Cuyler is the author of many books for children, including "From Here to There", "The Little Dump Truck", and "That's Good! That's Bad!" The idea for "That's Good! That's Bad!" was inspired by a conversation with her son, Thomas, who asked, "Can't bad things change into good things?" Ms. Cuyler grew up in the oldest house in Princeton, NJ, and started writing stories as soon as she learned how to write. She now lives in the same house with her husband, sons and two cats.

Joe Mathieu also illustrated Laura Numeroff's "Chimps Don't Wear Glasses." He lives in Connecticut with his family.
