Melissa Rooney (nee Bunin) grew up in Martinsville, VA and now lives in Durham, NC. In the spring, she likes to collect tadpoles with her kids and rear them in an aquarium in her house before releasing them in an outdoor location with a steady supply of water (she feeds them wilted lettuce and is careful not to use untreated tap water). This is her third children's book. Visit her at www.melissarooneywriting.com. Stacy Fabbre graduated from The Ohio State University with a degree in Criminology never believing that she would one day be lucky enough to be a published illustrator. She currently lives in Powell, Ohio along with her loving husband, their two beautiful daughters and one mammoth sized dog. In her spare time she can be found lounging comfortably in her house with either a good book or a sketch pad in her hands. You can email Stacy any fun stories, questions, or comments at firstname.lastname@example.org.
