About the Author

A former school teacher, Randall de Séve is the author of the New York Times bestselling Toy Boat and the popular The Duchess of Whimsy, on which she collaborated with her husband. Ms. de Séve was inspired to write Peanut and Fifi Have a Ball after witnessing a similar exchange between her daughters. She lives in Brooklyn, New York with her family. 

Paul Schmid has written and illustrated a number of books for children, three of which have been honored by the Society of Illustrators. He won the Maurice Sendak Fellowship to spend a month with Mr. Sendak working on Peanut and Fifi Have a Ball. Mr. Sendak called Paul, "an artist with a superb eye for line and composition." He lives with his wife and daughter in Seattle, Washington.
