Editorial Reviews


“Harrison’s clean, bright illustrations add expression and personality to the story. ...this endearing protagonist earns a place on the children’s STEM shelf. A good introduction to observation, data, and trying again.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Cece is a smart and curious girl who loves to get to the bottom of all her complex questions. ...Harrison’s expressive digital illustrations have a lot of energy, color, and motion...A fun way to introduce scientific methods.” (Booklist)

“Excited by her teacher’s assignment to find and investigate a question, [Cece] pairs up with a partner, Isaac, to brainstorm ideas...The story includes images of an inviting science classroom and mentions a variety of sciences and a range of scientists diverse in race and gender. ... Words and pictures combine to make smooth blend of entertainment and education.” (School Library Journal)

About the Author

As a child, Kimberly Derting spent hours drawing underground "worm cities" because her art skills didn't allow her to draw arms or legs. In college, she studied biology, but her real experiments are done at home, where she wrangles three kids, one husband, two dogs, two cats, and a rabbit--seriously, she's practically a zookeeper! She's terrified of spiders and snakes, but loves animals (obviously!), so she's spent her free time volunteering for a local animal shelter, with her daughter. Her hypothesis is that she's always right...although she's never actually been able to prove that theory. And even if you don't laugh at her jokes, she knows in her heart that she's hilarious. 

Shelli R. Johannes never warmed up to creepy crawly bugs, but she always loved zoology and biology. In fact, she can be found on highways and country roads saving strays and jaywalking critters, or volunteering with animal conservation groups like the Atlanta Zoo, the Dolphin Project, and Bosley's Place. Unfortunately she learned  that chemistry (aka cooking) was not her favorite science, resulting in odd reactions and minor explosions. She lives in Atlanta with her husband, two kids, one bird, one fish, and two crazy-haired goldendoodles who, just like Einstein, seem to love fruit and dessert, but loathe veggies.

Part author - illustrator - filmmaker, Vashti Harrison is an artist originally from Onley, Virginia. She has a background in filmmaking and a love for storytelling. She earned her BA from the University of Virginia as a double major in Media Studies and Studio Art with concentrations in Film and Cinematography. She also received her MFA in Film and Video from CalArts where she snuck into Animation classes to learn from Disney and Dreamworks legends. There she rekindled a love for drawing and painting. Now, utilizing both skillsets, she is passionate about crafting beautiful stories for children and young adults in the film and kidlit worlds.
