About the Author
Florence Parry Heide (1919-2011) authored of over 100 children's books, including Princess Hyacinth, Fables You Shouldn't Pay Any Attention To, and The Shrinking of Treehorn, a A New York Times Best Illustrated Book of the Year and has a forthcoming film adaptation from Ron Howard. Growing up, Merrill Rainey spent most of his Saturday afternoons watching monster movies, drawing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and going on imaginary adventures. Today, he is a cowboy-boot-wearing, picture-book-creator, and paper-toy-maker. Merrill's work focuses on exploring creativity and imaginative play. His current titles include Roar! I'm a Dinosaur and Color, Cut, Create. When asked, Merrill's biggest fear are the things he might step on when he takes off his cowboy boots!

"The new illustrations, created with graphite pencil and digital tools, are colorful and imaginative. . . . A heartening picture book that can boost almost anyone's courage."--Booklist "The storytelling's unabashed sincerity balances well-trod themes of empathy and self-esteem, and the new illustrations follow suit, channeling an openhearted feel with big shapes, a playful palette, and poster-like compositions."--Publishers Weekly
