About the Author

Lisa Katzenberger is the author of National Average Ordinary Day, It Will Be Okay, and Triceratops Will Not Make a Good Ninja as well as the forthcoming I Can Do It Even if I'm Scared; Thank You, Library; and the chapter book series Croc & Gator. She has been making up stories to entertain herself since she was a child. She loves to write books that make children laugh, escape, and dream. Lisa lives near Chicago with her family in a hundred-year-old Victorian house with sloping floors and the tiniest bathroom you've ever seen. When she's not writing or taking care of her kids, she spends way too much time on Twitter as @FictionCity.

Jaclyn Sinquett grew up playing in her dad's garden, feeding worms to box turtles, and tossing french fries to seagulls at the Jersey Shore. She is the illustrator of multiple picture books, including her recent titles Loud Mouse, written by Idina Menzel and Cara Mentzel, and How to Get Your Octopus to School, written by Becky Scharnhorst. She lives in Brick, New Jersey. Learn more about her at, and follow her on Instagram @JSinquett.


"Sinquett's brightly hued cartoons delightfully express the characters' emotions and personalities...[a] sweet tale of kindness." -- Kirkus Reviews
"A great read aloud to discuss friendship and being there for them to support them when they are afraid and need us." -- Youth Services Book Review
