About the Author
Jonathan Rosen is a transplanted New Yorker, who now lives with his family in sunny South Florida. He spends his "free" time being a volunteer coach and chauffeur for his three kids. Some of Jonathan's fondest childhood memories are of discovering a really good book to dive into. His favorite of all time is Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. He currently writes middle-grade, because his sense of humor is stuck in that age. Jonathan is proud to be half-Mexican and half-American, although neither country is really willing to accept responsibility.
Henry Herz (San Diego, CA) authored ten picture books. His children's short stories have been published in Highlights for Children, Ladybug Magazine, and in anthologies for Albert Whitman & Co. and Blackstone Publishing. Henry also writes adult science fiction and fantasy short stories. He holds a BS in Engineering from Cornell, an MS in Engineering from George Washington University, and an MA in Political Science from Georgetown.
"The feel-good collection weaves threads among disparate adolescent episodes..."--Booklist
