Deborah Underwood is the author of numerous picture books, including Finding Kindness, Interstellar Cinderella, Part-time Princess, and the New York Times Best Sellers Here Comes the Easter Cat, The Quiet Book, and The Loud Book! Her ballet career was cut short by a tragic lack of talent, but she can sing a mean aria and knows four ukulele chords. Please visit Deborah online at DeborahUnderwoodBooks.com.


Maryn Roos was always better at drawing ballerinas than being one. Beyond ballerinas, she has drawn everything from monsters to dancing ducks in dozens of books and several educational software programs. Maryn lives and draws, and very rarely dances, in Orem, Utah.
