About the Author

Amy Timberlake's novels for young readers have received a Newbery Honor, an Edgar Award, a Golden Kite Award, and the China Times Best Book Award. She grew up in Hudson, Wisconsin, but now calls Chicago home. She is a graduate of Mount Holyoke College, and holds an MA in English and Creative Writing from the University of Illinois. You can find her walking on Chicago's Lakefront Trail on cool, crisp fall days.

Jon Klassen grew up in Niagara Falls, Canada, and now lives in Los Angeles, California. He is the New York Times bestselling author and illustrator of several books, including I Want My Hat Back and This Is Not My Hat, for which he won the Caldecott Medal. Two of his picture books have been named Caldecott Honor books: Sam and Dave Dig a Hole and Extra Yarn (winner of the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award), both by Mac Barnett.

Reviews

"Leaning heavily on its delightfully whimsical qualities, Book 2 of Timberlake and Klassen's endearing series also boasts a whole lot of heart, perhaps even more so than its predecessor. Even as its often fantastical premise careens over the edge (and thrillingly so), the series' titular duo keep it grounded thanks to Timberlake's clear admiration for these characters and their quirks. Klassen's artwork, meanwhile, continues to awe with its wistfulness. As wonderful as Important Rock Work."
--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Timberlake creates an irresistible mix of high stakes, laugh-out-loud moments, and truly unexpected plot twists . . . making for an unforgettable expedition. Klassen's chapter illustrations . . . further heighten the story's charm and humor. All told, it's a wonderful read."
--Booklist, starred review

"Author Amy Timberlake has such a fun franchise going with the Skunk and Badger books . . . Clever, smart, and laugh-out-loud funny and exciting at the same time. Her writing is terrific, and the story is compelling. The illustrations by Jon Klassen have just the right sense of fun to them to accompany this terrific story. It's a good one!"
