About the Author

Tommy Greenwald went on strike once in his life, when the local Baskin-Robbins decided to discontinue his favorite flavor, German Chocolate Cake. The strike lasted until he realized they still sold Rocky Road. When Tommy Greenwald's not sitting on his couch, he's the executive creative director at SPOTCO, an entertainment advertising agency in New York City. Tommy swears he wasn't anything like the over-involved dad portrayed in this book. Ask his kids! No wait, don't. Tommy lives in Connecticut with his wife, Cathy; his non-reading sons, Charlie, Joe and Jack; and his dogs.

Melissa Mendes is a cartoonist and illustrator living and working in Hancock, Massachusetts, with her best beau, Charles Forsman, and their best cat, Bruce.
