About the Author

ANDREA CURTIS's children's non-fiction titles include A Forest in the City, City of Water, City Street are for People and City of Neighbors in the ThinkCities series. She has also written the young adult novel Big Water. Andrea lives with her family in Toronto, Ontario, where she grows veggies, explores the ravines and spends as much time as possible on her bike.

Emma FitzGerald was born in Lesotho, a small mountainous kingdom in Southern Africa, to Irish parents, did most of her growing up in Vancouver, and calls Halifax home. She wrote and illustrated Hand Drawn Halifax, Sketch by Sketch Along Nova Scotia's South Shore, Hand Drawn Vancouver, and has illustrated the Ann Connor Brimer Award-winning EveryBody's Different on EveryBody Street and A Pocket of Time, which was shortlisted for the 2020 Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Canadian Picture Book Award. When she isn't sketching, she enjoys dancing and getting lost in new places.
