Melinda Lee Rathjen grew up in southern Illinois, reading past her bedtime whenever she could get away with it. As an editor at WorthyKids, she still spends a lot of time reading, though stealth and flashlights are rarely necessary. She lives in Nashville, Tennessee.

Rob McClurkan is a storyteller. Sometimes he uses words and sometimes pictures. He has written and illustrated two picture books, Aw, Nuts! and Playdates Rule!, and he has also illustrated a bunch of other fun picture books, like Beware the Flerken and Super Rooster Saves the Day. He lives in Georgia with a dog, two kids, and a wife. He also has a snake in his backyard that says hello every spring. It’s a nice snake but keeps to itself, and Rob likes it that way.
