About the Author
When she was a baby, Barbara Kerley shared nap time and her crib with a cat named Mrs. Hancock. Barbara now lives in Portland, Oregon, with her husband, Scott, and their dog, Seamus--who, she is pretty sure, understands everything she says. Barbara is the award-winning author of numerous books for kids, including Following Baxter, The Dinosaurs of Waterhouse Hawkins, What to Do about Alice?, A Home for Mr. Emerson, and A Cool Drink of Water. You can learn more about her pets and her books at www.barbarakerley.com.

"A highly readable story that pairs a rapid-fire plot with a likable progragonist."--Kirkus Reviews
