About the author (2003)

Alice Flanagan has written more than 100 titles for children and teachers. Her books include holidays, phonics for beginning readers, career guidance, biographies of U.S. presidents and first ladies, and informational books about famous people and events in American history. Ms. Flanagan lives with her husband in Chicago, Illinois. As a writer/photographer team, they have published several books together. Their travels have taken them to many beautiful places and brought them many lifelong friends.

When Patrick Girouard was growing up, his teachers constantly scolded him for drawing monsters instead of paying attention in class. Many years later, he put all of that practice to good use when his first book assignment turned out to be about Halloween! Now he lives in Indiana and gets to draw all day. His work can be found on greeting cards, games, toys, puzzles, books, odd scraps of paper, the margins of newspapers, and his Mom's refrigerator door. Patrick loves coffee, has the strength of ten men, and hates writing about himself in the third person. Oh, and he was once struck by lightning and magnetized for a week.
