About the Author

George Booth has been drawing cartoons for publications like The New Yorker and The New York Times for more than thirty years. He also illustrates children's books like this one. He lives on Long Island with his wife, Dione, who is not missing a shoe or an orange wig. He has said that no matter how old he gets, he never wants to stop trying new things—even if one of those things is a beanie weenie on a bun.

Kate McMullan has written more than 100 books for children. Yes, that's 100! These books include I Stink! and I'm Dirty! She has said that when she writes, she thinks back to her grade-school days—"the yucky lunches" and "the torture of gym class for the non-athletic." But she can't remember a time when her bus got stuck in a ditch or if she ever had a cat named Moose. She does remember that she always loved to read, and as soon as she could, she read her way through the children's shelves at her local library. When she grew up, she taught fourth grade in inner-city Los Angeles and on an American Air Force Base in Germany. Reading to her students, she started to wonder if she could write for kids. More than 100 books later, it appears she can! McMullan lives in Sag Harbor with her husband and collaborator, the illustrator Jim McMullan.
