About the Author
Karen Robbins has found that children and stories are her passion and purpose. As a former teacher and environmental education consultant, she has always worked to share her love of the planet with people of all ages. Karen lives in Seattle, Washington, where she enjoys designing and writing books, stories, and poems for kids. She is the mother of four amazing sons and grandmother of five gifted grandchildren. Karen cares for our world and all living creatures, even the slippery slugs! Alexandra Ball loves to illustrate children s books because she feels she is still yet to grow up. Her work is inspired by her childhood, which was filled with climbing trees, having picnics with bears, and talking to ants. She currently lives in Hampshire, England, with a wild animal of her very own a crazy springer spaniel called Bee, who sits beside Alexandra while she works and lets her know whether the picture is any good with a swift wag of her tail.
