Elizabeth Dennis grew up in Arizona, where she loved finding teeny, tiny, fairy-sized wildflowers in the desert and seeing double rainbows over the mountains. Nowadays, she lives in New York City and writes and edits books for children, and still loves flowers, nature, and double rainbows!

Lee Cosgrove is a children’s illustrator from a small town on the banks of the River Mersey in England. A lifelong doodler, his love of drawing is inspired by a childhood of Saturday morning cartoons, den-building adventures, and an endless supply of crayons. Working as a full-time illustrator for the last ten years, Lee has enjoyed working on a wide range of projects from illustrating picture books, board games, and billboards. He loves to bring humor and lots of character to his illustrations. When he hasn’t got a pencil in hand, he can be found fossil hunting, feeding hedgehogs, or doing flying kicks.
