About the authors:

Barbara Kingsolver was trained as a biologist prior to her career as a writer of best-selling novels, poetry, and non-fiction. Her work has earned a devoted readership and major literary awards including the Pulitzer Prize and the National Humanities Medal. She and her husband live on a farm in the mountains of southwestern Virginia, a home they share with sheep, poultry, and countless wild creatures, including coyotes. This is her first book for children.

Lily Kingsolver grew up in southwest Virginia, where the Appalachian Mountains ignited her passion for wild creatures and the places they live. She has shared her love of the wild as a naturalist and educator in state parks and zoos in southwest Virginia and the Space Coast of Florida, where she is currently working on a graduate degree in environmental education. She lives in Florida with her husband, dog, and several reptiles. This is her first published book.

Eliot Schrefer is a New York Times bestselling author and has twice been a finalist for the National Book Award in Young People's Literature. His other awards include a Printz Honor, a Stonewall Honor, and the Green Earth Book Award. He is also the author of Charming Young Man, The Darkness Outside Us, Endangered, Threatened, and Queer Ducks (and Other Animals): The Natural World of Animal Sexuality. He lives with his husband in New York City, is on the faculty of the Hamline University and Fairleigh Dickinson University MFA in creative writing programs, and reviews books for USA Today.
