About the Author
WENDELIN VAN DRAANEN is the acclaimed author of more than thirty novels. Her novels for teens include Flipped, The Running Dream, winner of the Schneider Family Book Award; Wild Bird; Confessions of a Serial Kisser; and Runaway. Her books for younger readers include the eighteen-book Sammy Keyes mystery series, winner of the Edgar Allan Poe Award; The Secret Life of Lincoln Jones, winner of the Josette Frank Award; and Swear to Howdy. Van Draanen lives in California with her husband. CORNELIA LI is a Chinese born illustrator currently based in Toronto. A self-proclaimed science nerd, she has collaborated on several science related picture books: The Trouble With Time Travel by Stephen W. Martin, and Hello, Opportunity by Shaelyn McDaniel.
"In this funny, fresh take on a day gone wrong, Van Draanen and Li are sympathetic to their protagonist's travails, presenting readers with the opportunity to see in resilient Leda--and themselves--that whatever gravity may throw down, they'll rise above it." --Publishers Weekly "This cheerful tale uses Leda's case of the clumsies to introduce the concept of gravity. An engaging flight of imagination, grounded in fact." --Kirkus Reviews
