About the Author

One day when Kimberly Gee's twins were toddlers, she was getting them ready to leave the house. She might have been a tiny bit pressed for time. She might have encouraged the twins to HURRY—about a dozen times or so. Then, just as she opened the front door, they ran out of the house! "SLOW DOWN!" she called. The twins turned and gave her a look that said, Didn't you tell us to hurry? This made Kimberly notice that a toddler's day is full of opposites (and the parents' day, too!). Chuckling over the joy (and work!) of those toddler-rearing days inspired her to create this book. Kimberly is the author-illustrator of Mad, Mad Bear! and Today with Meg and Ted, and the illustrator of The Class (by Boni Ashburn). She lives in Claremont, California, with her twins and their dad.
