About the Author
Michelle Houts is the award-winning author of several middle-grade novels, picture books, and biographies for young readers including Winterfrost, which was a 2014 Bank Street Best Book and Junior Library Guild selection, and The Beef Princess of Practical County, which was awarded the 2010 IRA Children's Book Award. She lives, works, and plays on a farm in western Ohio, where she is restoring a one-room schoolhouse. While in second grade, she begged her parents for a chemistry kit but wasn't quite sure what to do when she actually got it. Lucy's Lab allows her to be the scientist she always wanted to be.
Deb Hoeffner describes her unique style of "soft realism" as a layering of thought, paint, and possibilities. She specializes in capturing the spirit behind the eyes of her subjects, both animals and humans. In Silent Swoop, her illustrations tell the story of the special bond between Coal and Walter. A true animal lover, Deb shares her studio in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, with her collie, Isabelle Patch, and the deer, fox, crows, hawks, and other birds and animals that inhabit her backyard. An award-winning artist and book illustrator, Deb features her work at www.debhoeffner.com.
