About the Author
Bonnie Grubman grew up with a love of reading. As a child, she lived in an apartment with her family, pet turtles, and a parakeet. On hot summer nights, she would cool off on the fire escape with a flashlight and a big stack of books. Bonnie went to nursing school, but later decided to trade her nurse's hat for a classroom full of picture books. She was inspired by her students who found joy and curiosity in everything they saw. Because of these kids, and for all kids, she became a writer. Bonnie lives in Syosset, New York. Suzanne Diederen (1974) received an education at the Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts and Design. She specialized in illustrating children's books and picture books. Her works have been translated into German, Swedish, Danish, French, English, Italian, Spanish and Korean. When she isn't doing yoga or having fun with her son Gilles and her daughter Sophie, she can be found working illustrations for a new picture book.
