About the Author

Andrea Veenker is a wife, mother, and bodybuilder. She is passionate about fitness and teaching her children to love health, wellness, and to value and love their amazing bodies. She is thrilled to share that same love with your family through this book.

Patrick Gray is an illustrator based out of Montreal, Canada, who studied at the Ontario College of Art & Design. His lifelong challenges are to make art that's just as complicated as it needs to be and to know precisely when to stop working on a drawing: skills that (not-at-all maddeningly) his one-year-old daughter has already mastered.
