Editor Brod Bagert lives in New Orleans, LA. He is a writer whose poems are written for children to perform. His 15 books of poetry include Shout: Little Poems that Roar; Giant Children; and School Fever (all Dial Books for Young Readers). Brod tours 30 weeks of the year to entertain audiences with poetry, and has visited Asia, Europe, and South America. Illustrator Carolynn Cobleigh lives in New York City. She received her degree in illustration from the School of Visual Arts.
"Cobleigh's rich palette and haunting illustrations are the perfect pairing to Poe's often macabre poems and Bagert's short commentaries give the reader just enough insight to begin exploring the works on their own." --Children's Literature
