About the Author

Kerri's writing features unique structures, playful language, humor, tension, tenderness, simple text, and complicated characters. She has a good vision for how text and art can work together to tell a complete story. Kerri credits most of her story ideas to her fly on the wall personality. This means she's both a keen observer of social interactions and a nosey eavesdropper. Kerri lives in Seattle, Washington with her husband, two children, and three dogs.

Mike Lowery is a New York Times Bestselling Illustrator who has worked on dozens of award-winning books for kids including The Gingerbread Man Loose in the School by Laura Murray, Mac B, Kid Spy by Mac Barnett, How to Be A T.Rex by Ryan North and MANY others. He's also written several books, including the Doodle Adventures series of graphic novels for kids and Random Illustrated Facts: A Collection of Curious, Weird, and Totally Not Boring Things to Know which collects his drawings of super-weird and totally true facts.


"Kokias' clear, accessible tone pairs well with Lowery's cartoon style. The comically smiling horse invites readers in, and intermittent paneled frames help organize the flow of information and visually propel the storytelling arc. Clever, indeed." -Kirkus

"Lowery's one-dimensional cartoon illustrations are playful and bold . . .Budding horse fans, history fans, and science fans will all find something here to pique their interests." -Booklist
