Poppy Green can talk to animals! Unfortunately, they never talk back to her. So she started writing in order to imagine what they might say and do when humans aren't watching. Poppy lives on the edge of the woods in Connecticut, where her backyard is often a playground for all kinds of wildlife: birds, rabbits, squirrels, voles, skunks, deer, and the occasional wild turkey. Jennifer A. Bell is an illustrator whose work can be found on greeting cards, in magazines, and in over a dozen children's books. She lives with her husband, son, and cranky cat in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
