About the author (2002)

For Jan Eliot, cartooning started out as therapy and evolved into a career. She drew her first cartoons when she was a newly divorced mom trying to juggle raising two daughters with a full-time job. Stone Soup is still loosely based on her family and friends and the real world around her.

Lynn Johnston is the creator of the comic strip "For Better or For Worse," which is distributed by United Feature Syndicate. It appears in more than two-thousand newspapers worldwide, in twenty countries, and in eight languages, reaching 220 million readers every day. In the twenty-four years since it was developed, there have been thirty books of cartoons published.

Brenda Wegmann is an experienced teacher and author of ESL and Spanish-language textbooks and instructional guides; she also teaches at Edmonton Community College.
