John Frank is an accomplished poet as well as an author of humorous stories. His 2001 picture book The Tomb of the Boy King was proclaimed "a mesmerizing epic poem" by Publishers Weekly, and his most recent title, A Chill in the Air, was published by Simon & Schuster in fall 2003. He hangs his hat in Kirkland, Washington.
Zachary Pullen's witty, character-oriented illustrations have been featured in Sports Illustrated, the New York Times Book Review, and the Wall Street Journal. He hails from beneath the big skies of Wyoming -- a fact clearly evident in these paintings -- and currently lives in upstate New York with his wife, Renate. This is his first picture book.
