About the author (1997)

Jane Kurtz grew up in East Africa and has recently traveled and spoken at schools in both East and West Africa. On two childhood visits to the United States, she found many things to worry her. (One was black widow spiders, which she was sure were going to crawl into her bed the year she lived in California.) But none of the strange new things she saw in America felt quite as unnerving if she could climb into bed with her older sister or tell stories to her younger brother. She now lives in Hesston, Kansas.

E.B. Lewis's watercolor paintings appear in BIG BOY and many other picture books. The recipient of a Coretta Scott King Honor for Illustration, he lives in Folsom, New Jersey.
