About the author (1993)

A heartwarming period piece based on a true incident, lovingly told, beautifully illustrated," raved The New York Times Book Review of Michael O. Tunnell's Mailing May, illustrated by Ted Rand, which was also honored as a 1998 ALA Notable Book. The author of five picture books, two chapter books, two novels, and one documentary, Mike teaches children's literature at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. He and his wife, Glenna, have four children and two grandchildren.

Barry Root is the illustrator of many books for children, including "Gumbrella, " which he also wrote; Dream Big"; "By My Brother's Side"; and "Game Day", which received a Christopher Award in the category of books for young people. He lives with his family in Quarryville, Pennsylvania.
