About the author (2000)

Justine Fontes says, "After briefly wanting to be a cow, because I thought it would be peaceful, I decided instead to become a writer. I figured that working in publishing might give me a clue about how to get published. It also led to meeting my husband, Ron, a lifelong storyteller in words and pictures. Together we have written more than four hundred children's books." This is her first book with Candlewick Press.
Geoff Waring is a graphic designer in London. BLACK MEETS WHITE is his first book with Candlewick Press.
