About the Author
Alicia Klepeis loves to research fun and out-of-the-ordinary topics that bring the world to young readers - from amazing animals to extreme environments. Alicia began her career at the National Geographic Society. She is the author of more than 170 children's books, including Gutsy Girls Go For Science: Astronauts; Polar Bears & Penguins: A Pretty Cool Introduction to the Arctic and Antarctic; The Science And Technology Of Ben Franklin; and The World's Strangest Foods. A former middle school teacher, Alicia loves doing school visits. She lives with her family in upstate New York.Kristen Adam is based in the beautiful city of San Francisco, but grew up a tiny explorer of the wild redwood forests of northern California. Her love of getting lost in the fantasies of her doodles led her to study illustration at California College of the Arts, where she discovered her passion for illustrating children's books. As a freelance illustrator, Kristen's work is a whimsical mix of digital media and traditional textures. A few of her favorite projects include illustrating the patterns on her nephews' favorite Harry Potter, Star Wars Mandalorian, and Lego sheet sets. She's inspired most by spending time in nature and finding magic in the seemingly ordinary. When she's not wandering the woods identifying wildflowers, she loves stargazing, reading sci-fi/fantasy novels, practicing archery, and snuggling her dog Charlie.
