About the Author
Dana Claire Simpson grew up in Gig Harbor, Washington, drawing the entire time. She eventually graduated from The Evergreen State College, despite having spent all her time drawing, and not always for credit.

From 1998 to 2008, she drew the internet comic strip Ozy and Millie. After winning the Amazon-sponsored Comic Strip Superstar Contest in 2009, Andrews McMeel Syndication signed her to a development deal for Heavenly Nostrils, which was later renamed Phoebe and Her Unicorn.

She currently lives in Santa Barbara, California, with her tech genius spouse and her fairly stupid cat.
"Readers in need of a good friend can curl up with this title. They won't be sorry." (Esther Keller, School Library Journal's Good Comics for Kids blog)
"This is a really cute book that is cleverly written...very relatable to girls ages 8 to 12..." (Time to Play Magazine)
Included in the "Your pre-approved list of feminist books for all the kids in your life" roundup. (Caroline Gerdes, Hello Giggles)
"Clean lines, clearly delineated panels and sparse background detail keep readers focused on the characters, driving the story forward without distraction. Recommend this to fans of Jennifer and Matthew Holm's Babymouse series and Frank Cammuso's Salem Hyde...A sweet, spun-sugar confection just right for unicorn fans." (Kirkus Reviews)
"I can't wait to share this collection with my students." (Travis Jonker, School Library Journal's "100 Scope Notes" blog)
"Situational humor will appeal to all regardless of gender. The volume contains chuckles and pop references that will entertain the most skeptical adults as well as the target audience." (Library Media Connection)
"... hilarious, sweet, and unsentimental..." (Cory Doctorow, BoingBoing)
"...unique and witty...Simple line drawings bring the characters to life without detracting from the clever dialogue...those looking for something to read after Jenni Holm's 'Babymouse' books might want to take a look." (Barbara Moon, School Library Journal)
"...the friendship between [Phoebe and Marigold] is impeccably developed...Rich humor lies in the illustrations..." (The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books)
Named one of the "Best Feminist Books for Young Readers" list, "...a breathtakingly refreshing look at friendships and school age struggles." (Brandi Bailey, BookRiot)
