Tom Brannon has been illustrating children's books for 35 years and has more than 300 titles to his credit, including many for Sesame Street, Jim Henson's Muppets, Dr. Seuss, and Peanuts. He lives in rural Wisconsin with his wife, four children, and more critters than he can count. Lori C. Froeb began her career in publishing right out of college at Reader's Digest world headquarters in Pleasantville, New York. She landed a dream job as an editor for Reader's Digest Children's Publishing (now Studio Fun International) and worked on licensed, nonfiction, craft, and religious novelty books for 22 years. Following her time at Studio Fun, Lori took a road trip across the U.S. and, upon her return home, decided to enter the exciting world of freelancing. Today, Lori works as an independent children's book editor and writer with more than 200 authored titles under her belt. In her free time, she is an avid photographer, hiker, and traveler who lives with her morkie Frodo in the Hudson Valley, New York.
