About the author (1993)

As a kid, Tom Birdseye was decidedly uninterested in writing--or any academic aspect of school, for that matter--never imagining that he would eventually become a published author. And yet, nineteen titles later--novels, picture books, and nonfiction--that is exactly what has happened. His work has been recognized for its excellence by the International Reading Association, Children's Book Council, National Council of Social Studies, Society of School Librarians International, Oregon Library Association, and Oregon Reading Association, among others. Combined, his books have either won or been finalists for state children's choice awards forty-three times. Life, it seems, is full of who'd-a-thought-its. He lives and writes in Corvallis, Oregon, but launches mountaineering expeditions to his beloved Cascades on a regular basis.
