Behaviors: Complex thinking; organizes ideas in a unique way

ABOUT THE AUTHOR AND ILLUSTRATOR:

George Shannon grew up in a home filled with books and family stories. He spent years as a children's librarian and professional storyteller. He feels, "The challenge of sharing a story in as few words as possible and with a vital theme inside a 'light-hearted' plot is one I sense I'll always enjoy as surely as I do reading."

Donald Crews is the renowned creator of many celebrated children's books, including the Caldecott Honor Books Freight Train and Truck. He and his wife, Ann Jonas, live in New York's Hudson River Valley.
