About the Author:

Stephen Gammell (b. February 10, 1943) is an American illustrator of children's books. His awards include the Caldecott Medal. Stephen Gammell grew up in Iowa. His father, an art editor for a major magazine, brought home periodicals that gave Stephen early artistic inspiration. His parents also supplied him with lots of pencils, paper, and encouragement. He is self-taught. He started his career with commercial freelance work, but became interested in children's book illustration. His first book, A Nutty Business, was published in 1973. Since then, he has illustrated over fifty titles. He is particularly well-known for the surreal, unsettling illustrations he provided for Alvin Schwartz's Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark series of horror short stories, still a favorite in adolescent fiction. Stephen and his wife, Linda, a photographer, live in St. Paul, Minnesota. He works daily in his studio, located over a restaurant.

Elvira Woodruff has written more than twenty picture books and novels for young readers, including Dear Levi: Letters from the Overland Trail, Dear Austin: Letters from the Underground Railroad,The Ghost of Lizard Light, and The Memory Coat, illustrated by Michael Dooling. The author lives in Martins Creek, PA.
