Jim Petipas remembers at a young age, his dad checking out books for him from the library on "How to Draw." He has been drawing ever since! However, this is the first book he has written and also the first he has illustrated. Most of the words of this book began as a silly song that Jim and some friends wrote while they were in high school. Jim is also a musician. He sang, played drums, and cowbell on, "The Cows Go Moo" song, which can be downloaded free at TheCowsGoMoo.com. Jim, his wife Beth, two daughters Olivia and Sophia, and their silver lab Earl, live in Massachusetts.
