About the Author
Mattia was born in Cuneo, a small town surrounded by the beautiful Italian Alps. At 2-3 years old, besides eating a lot of pasta, his father (an artist in his own right!) introduced and encouraged Mattia to draw. As a result, he spent most of his time creating funny images on every surface he could find. When Mattia grew up, he decided to study illustration at the European Institute of Design (IED) in Turin. Within eight months of graduation, he landed his first Illustration job, a book titled My First Picture Dictionary for Rass Language House, Hong Kong. Mattia resides in Cuneo and when not illustrating, he enjoys playing basketball, traveling around the world, playing his bass guitar, and skiing on the Alps.
Jannie Ho studied illustration at Parsons School of Design in New York. Jannie's books include The Haunted Ghoul Bus (Sterling, 2008), written by Lisa Trumbauer, The Mixed-Up Alphabet (Scholastic, 2007), written by Steve Metzger, and The Penguins' Perfect Picnic (Innovative Kids, 2007), written by Trish Rabe. She lives in Philadelphia.
