Kate Riggs is a Minnesota-based editor and author of children's and young adult nonfiction books. In 2012, her book Dolphins (Amazing Animals) won a Maryland Blue Crab Young Reader Award. Nate Williams was born in the United States but now resides in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where his interests in digitally produced illustrations and hand lettering make him sought after by a varied clientele.
"Hand-drawn lettering and a limited palette of inky black, sepia, cream and aquamarine give this little book a lot of style. A vehicle of some kind - wagon, rocket, train, plane, bike or car - moves across each spread, described with a nice choice of action verb: "A train click-clacks along a track"; "A rocket roars way up high." A round-eyed boy and girl are accompanied on their travels by a self-possessed cat, a dog in wire-rimmed spectacles and a bird wearing a conductor's cap. These whimsical illustrations are detailed enough to reward the kind of "reading" toddlers like to do when they are studying their books alone." - New York Times
