About the Author
Katie Van Camp is a former dancer who, at the age of eighteen, moved to Shanghai, China, to open a ballet school and teach kindergarten. A few years later she headed to New York to work as an au pair for a little boy named Harry (and his best friend, Horsie), who inspired her to write both Cookiebot! and her first picture book, Harry and Horsie. Katie is now back in Asia, writing and teaching. She currently calls Tokyo home.
Lincoln Agnew once tried to build his own robot out of a plastic bucket, a broken microwave, and "technology," but sadly its abilities were limited to catching fire. Years later, after giving up on world domination, he attended the Alberta College of Art and Design, where he obtained degrees in both illustration and photography. Lincoln made his debut as a picture book illustrator with Harry and Horsie, for which he won the 2009 Society of Illustrators "The Original Art" Founder's Award as well as the Marion Vannett Ridgway Award. He is currently rebuilding that robot.
Praise For CookieBot! (Harry and Horsie Adventures #2)…
— Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Praise for HARRY AND HORSIE: “With dashing visuals that capture Harry’s deep-space adventure with verve to spare, and a comforting resolution, this has potential to be a bedtime favorite.”
— ALA Booklist
Praise for HARRY AND HORSIE: “A delightful story with even more delightful illustrations. Agnew’s art is wonderfully retro-modern - like what the future looked like in, say, comic books of the ‘50s.”
— New York Post
Agnew’s high-energy, retro look makes a dashing complement to Van Camp’s hyperpowered flight of fancy.
