About the Author

E. Ann Moore is a middle school English teacher in the state of North Carolina. She teaches a creative writing elective each year in which she requires her students to write a children's story. Her students challenged her to write one herself, so she did.

Sophie A. Norman is an artist residing in the state of Florida. She is the mother of the author and, after much cajoling, agreed to illustrate this book. While much more involved than either envisioned, Sophie enjoyed bringing the characters to life.
