Edward Lear (1812-1888) was an author and illustrator who popularized limericks and is perhaps best known for his poem "The Owl and the Pussycat."
Jane Wattenberg is the creator of many books for young readers, including Mrs. Mustard's Baby Faces, Mrs. Mustard's Beastly Babies, Henny-Penny, and Never Cry Woof!, as well as the illustrator of This Is the Rain, by Lola M. Schaefer. She got her first camera as a young child and found her first experience in a darkroom, at age seventeen, thrilling. Since then, photography has been her passion. She photographed the kangaroo in this book in Australia, and the duck at the San Francisco Zoo.
Jane Wattenberg lives with her husband in San Francisco, California, where she raised three sons and now raises chickens and harvests honey from her own beehives.
