About the Author

SALLY J. PLA is the award-winning author of two novels for young people, The Someday Birds and Stanley Will Probably Be Fine . Many of Pla's stories are based on her experience of raising three active little boys, very close in age. When her sons were young and having a bad day, they loved being made into burritos -- getting wrapped tightly in their blankets. The tight pressure appealed especially to Pla's autistic son. Pla lives with her family in Southern California. You can find her online at sallyjpla.com.

Steve Wolfhard was born in Ontario, Canada, and has been drawing comics since he graduated from animation college. Steve has a fat barn cat named Haircut, whom he loves but does not like. The first zombie movie Steve ever saw was Return of the Living Dead, and it still scares the crud out of him.
