About the Author
Margaret McNamara is the Christopher Award-winning author of more than two dozen books for young readers, including the Robin Hill School series. The Fairy Bell Sisters series is inspired not only by her love of the classic sisterhood novel Little Women but by her own experiences growing up with older sisters (and a baby brother). Margaret and her family live in New York City, but they spend part of their summer on an island in Maine very much like Sheepskerry Island.

Gordon was born in England. He attended Rochdale College of Art, but became an engineer. In 1983 he switched his career to freelance illustrator. Since then he has illustrated many children's books.
