About the Author

VIKKI VANSICKLE is the author of a number of acclaimed novels for children including Words That Start With B, Summer Days, Starry Nights, the award-winning The Winnowing and the adorable picture book If I Had a Gryphon. Vikki started her career as a bookseller at The Flying Dragon, and she now balances her writing career with her job as Marketing Director at Penguin Random House Canada Young Readers. Vikki lives in Toronto with a cat named Barb who does not care for teddy bears OR magic.

SYDNEY HANSON was raised in Minnesota alongside numerous pets and brothers. When she wasn't tunneling through snowdrifts or rescuing frogs from rain gutters, she was drawing. In addition to illustrating her favorite things--animals, the natural world, and, of course, teddy bears--Sydney is an experienced 2D and 3D production artist. Sydney lives in Vancouver with her newest brother, a Labrador retriever named Cash.
