About the Author

Mara Bergman is an award-winning author, poet, and editor who has written more than twenty books for young children, including Bears, Bears Everywhere!; Snip Snap! What's That?; Oliver Who Would Not Sleep; and Oliver Who Travelled Far and Wide. Born in New York and raised on Long Island, she now lives in England.

Birgitta Sif studied art and design in the U.S. and worked as a children's book designer before moving to England to study illustration. She is the author and illustrator of several books for children. Born in Reykjavik, Iceland, Birgitta Sif now lives with her family in England.


Bergman, who writes poetry as well as picture books, creates a rhythmic, rhyming text that reads aloud beautifully...Capturing the sense, the polish, and the wit of the verse, Sif's digitally colored pencil drawings bring their own elegance and charm to the narrative while adding amusing details for curious viewers to discover. A beguiling picture book for imaginative children.
--Booklist (starred review)

Gentle rhymes and rhythm combine with equally gentle art as the two characters become a working team and then friends. Sweet fun for storytime and bedtime.
