About the Author
David Davis is the author of almost a dozen books with Pelican, including Jazz Cats, a 2002 Children's Book Choice selection; Librarian's Night Before Christmas; Nurse's Night Before Christmas; Ten Redneck Babies: A Southern Counting Book; Texas Aesop's Fables; Texas Mother Goose; and Texas Zeke and the Longhorn. Four of his books have earned spots on the Accelerated Reader list. He resides in Fort Worth, Texas.
An illustrator at heart, Ward left years of advertising illustration, where computers had gained a firm foothold in graphics, and jumped into children's books. "It took me a long time to find myself," she says, "but I love illustrating children's text and taking the art a few steps beyond the word, when there is an opportunity. "
