About the author (1998)

All Jim Aylesworth's stories for young children are filled with rhythm and read-out-loud sound. No surprise. Jim taught first grade for 25 years, and read aloud to his students countless times. He knows what they like to hear - piercing hog calls, nonsensical rhymes, or the shriek of a train cutting through the night. "Writing children's books is my way of being the teacher beyond the walls of my classroom for children that I may never know," Aylesworth says. But the rapt attention of his former students remains his inspiration. Jim Aylesworth lives in Chicago with his wife, Donna.

Barbara McClintock is a distinguished illustrator and collaborator with Jim Aylesworth who has three times had her works named The New York Times Best Illustrated. She began drawing as a very young child and was later encouraged by the author/illustrator Maurice Sendak. "He told me how to put together a dummy book and suggested I move to New York" - so she did. McClintock lives in Connecticut. She's had her work exhibited at several art galleries. For more information about Barbara McClintock, visit: scholastic.com/tradebooks
