Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Patrick Jennings is the author of the critically acclaimed middle-grade novels We Can’t All Be Rattlesnakes and Guinea Dog. He lives in Port Townsend, Washington. Matthew Cordell is the illustrator of Trouble Gum and Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie. He lives in Gurnee, Illinois.


More About the Author

As a kid Patrick Jennings was afraid of African black mambas and tigers. He grew up in Northwestern Indiana.

He got his first pair of glasses when he was eight, and always wished he had a nickname like his friend, Mike, who didn't need glasses. Mike was called "Tiger" by everyone, even the teachers. Wow.

Patrick Jennings encourages you to call him "Tiger," or, if you wish, "Tigersnack." Both names are hidden inside his name, as are "Rat," "Ratpick," and "Stinking Carp," none of which he wishes to be called. "Jetpack," however, is acceptable.

Before he became a professional writer, Tigersnack was a paperboy, a busboy, a fry cook, a hoddy, a record store clerk, a courier, a teacher, and a librarian. Tiger has since published twenty-one books for young readers. Can you find them somewhere on this site? He bets you can.

Jetpack's books have featured such creatures as electric dogs, rocket cats, grebes, coots, kangaroo rats, werewolves, scorpions, horses grown from seed, delphine aliens, teenagers, snakes, guinea dogs, ferrets, and actors.

He's still afraid of black mambas.
