About the author (2003)

Kevin O'Malley was in the fourth grade when he decided to illustrate books for children. He has a wild sense of humor and it comes through loud and clear in his books. In 1992, he made his children's book debut with Froggy Went A-Courting, based on a well known folk ballad. Kevin has illustrated books written by other writers, such as Cinder Edna and Chanukah in Chelm and has worked in animating multimedia displays for clients including the Smithsonian Institution. His latest books range from nonfiction to outrageous humor. Kevin lives in Baltimore, Maryland with his artist wife and two sons.
