About the author (1994)

ELLEN JACKSON was born and raised in southern California. As a teenager, she always wished her feet were small and delicate, and tried to cram them into shoes that were several sizes too small. Later, when she read the story of Cinderella to her kindergarten classes, she wondered how anyone could run in glass slippers, much less dance in them.

Now the author of several books for children, Ellen lives in Santa Barbara, California, where she has gladly forgotten the recipes for dozens of ways to make tuna casserole.

KEVIN O'MALLEY is the author and illustrator of many books, but this is the first project where has only been the writer. He lives in Baltimore, Maryland, with his wife and two sons.
PATRICK O'BRIEN is the author and illustrator of nine books for children. He dreamed up the concept of dinosaurs in spacesuits many years ago, but it was the irrepressibly zany mind of Kevin O'Malley who finally created the interstellar hero Captain Raptor. Patrick lives in Baltimore, Maryland, with his wife and son.
