Ms. Climo lives with her husband in California.

Erik Brooks is the author and illustrator of The Practically Perfect Pajamas and Octavius Bloom and the House of Doom. He had fun doing research for this book, especially visiting the snow monkeys at the Minnesota Zoo. Mr. Brooks lives in north-central Washington State.
