About the Author

Hi, I'm Sasha Choldenko, Gennifer's German shepherd, and I'd like to add my two doggy biscuits here. Gennifer says she's written fourteen books for kids, but how many are for dogs? Lately, I've decided to take matters into my own paws. I am recommending these changes to Gennifer's previous books: Dog Does My Shirts, Dog Shines My Shoes, Dog Does My Homework, Al Capone Throws His Dog a Stick, and my personal favorite, Chasing Cats. Send your fan mail directly to me. Bones of any kind are also welcome.

If you must, visit her online at, on Facebook at, and on Twitter at @choldenko.

Églantine Ceulemans was born in Belgium, where she spent her childhood drawing silly characters and funny pets. She attended the Emile Cohl art school in Lyon, France, transforming her passion for illustration into a career. She loves combining humor and sensitivity in her illustrations to inspire both children and their parents. She lives in Paris. Visit her online at, on Twitter at @lelephantine, or on Instagram at @eglantineceulemans.


Reminiscent of Judy Blume's work, this endearing story will make many children laugh and allow some to see a part of themselves.--Kirkus Reviews, Starred

It is Liam's quiet thoughtfulness and relationship with his sisters, especially his interest in their lives--Izzy's Down syndrome social group "the Forty-Sevens" and Dakota's impulsive experiments--that let him shine just as bright as his two extroverted sisters.--Publishers Weekly, Starred

Praise for the Al Capone books:

Choldenko's pacing is exquisite. . . . [A] great read. --Kirkus Reviews, Starred

Rich characterization, tender drama, and sleuthworthy clues, this poignant mystery makes for a thoroughly satisfying conclusion to the landmark historical trilogy. --Booklist, Starred

Choldenko continues to infuse the Alcatraz community with warmth and originality. --Publishers Weekly, Starred

Choldenko's storytelling is compelling, portraying human decency as a force more powerful than heroism. --Newsday
