About the Author

Beth Ferry is the New York Times bestselling author of Stick and Stone, illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld, and many other books. She lives in New Jersey with her husband, three children, and two bulldogs.

Terry Fan and Eric Fan are brothers who made their picture book debut with the acclaimed book The Night Gardener, which they wrote and illustrated together. As children they spent one lazy summer on a farm, stargazing at night, chasing fireflies, loading hay bales, and watching the season slowly give way to the brilliant colors of fall. They now reside in Toronto, where they still gaze at the night sky and look for those rare falling stars to wish upon. Visit them online at www.thefanbrothers.com.
