As the youngest of eight siblings, Lisa Katzenberger has been making up stories to entertain herself since she was a child. She loves to write books that make children laugh, escape, and dream. Lisa lives near Chicago with her family in a 100-year-old Victorian house with sloping floors and the tiniest bathroom you've ever seen. When she's not writing or taking care of her kids, she spends way too much time on Twitter as @FictionCity. Barbara Bakos grew up in a suburb of Budapest next to a little forest. She graduated as an animation director at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest and began working as an art director and designer for a television series and some short films, though she always knew she wanted to spend more time as an illustrator. She now lives between England and Hungary, and misses her big ginger cat when she is not with her, along with her Johnny Cash discs.
