About the author (2019)

Liora lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two children, and their adored standard poodle. While browsing in a bookstore in college she happened to pick up a book about animal testing in the cosmetics industry. After reading it cover to cover in the aisle, her outlook changed and she immediately became vegetarian, and eventually vegan. In addition to spending time with her family and friends, Liora loves hiking, photography, and reading mystery novels. Glenn Saks lives in Los Angeles with his wife. He enjoys hiking in the nearby San Gabriel mountains and puttering around on his kayak. At the same time as he was analysing legal precedent and contract clauses, Glenn also began analysing what he was putting on his plate. He had long noticed the disconnect between children enjoying stories with cute animals as the hero, and how often those very same animals were being fed to them at meal time. Susan Szecsi is a classically trained freelance illustrator and visual storyteller, living with her husband in Berkeley. Susan has worked with clients such as Scholastic, Chicago Review Press, Stanford University Press, Hunter House Publishers, and UCSF.
