About the Author

Troy Wilson has had a number of stories published in children's magazines, including Chirp and chickaDEE. Liam Takes a Stand is his fourth picture book. He never ran a lemonade stand as a kid, and he claims he never competed with his younger brother -- except when they played video games. Troy lives in Victoria, British Columbia.

Josh Holitnaty graduated from the Alberta College of Art & Design and has created illustrations for clients such as The New York Times, Wired, and The Walrus. Josh is also the illustrator of A Beginner's Guide to Immortality: From Alchemy to Avatars and It's Catching. Originally from Alberta, he now lives in Toronto, Ontario.
