Meet the Author

Sean Stewart Price has written more than 50 books for children and teenagers, and his biography "Front Page Lives: Benazir Bhutto" garnered a starred review from Booklist. He has edited nine books for teachers and contributed to numerous text books and reference works. A former managing editor of "Junior Scholastic" magazine in New York, Price has written articles for publications such as "National Geographic Kids" and "The New York Times Upfront". He lives with his family in Alabama.

Eldon's first career was as a Seattle policeman, from which he gleaned a collection of vintage mug shots that have inspired many of his more outrageous characters. Following a lifelong love of drawing, he quit his police work and enrolled in the San Francisco Academy of Art. From there, his original line-and-wash cartoons have now evolved into computer-generated illustration using Fractal Painter and Photoshop. Step-by-Step Electronic Design featured his procedure for creating richly detailed mock-historic portraits. He and his wife Sally live in northern California, and he still loves to ride his motorcycle whenever he can.
