About the Author
Lindsey Craig grew up in a dancing and singing family. She often wakes up tapping her foot and hears music in everyday things, from honking cars to thrumming crickets. She has written a musical, and her children's play, Cinderella's Shakespeare, is performed nationwide. Dancing Feet! is her first foray into children's books. She lives with her husband and children on a small island in Washington State. Marc Brown is the creator of Arthur, the star of many picture books and a six-time Emmy Award-winning PBS television show. He is also the illustrator of Buying, Training & Caring for Your Dinosaur, by Laura Joy Rennert, and the New York Times bestsellers Wild About Books and Born to Read, both by Judy Sierra. He lives on Martha's Vineyard and in New York City.
