Brenda Z. Guiberson has written many books for children, including Cactus Hotel , Spoonbill Swamp , Moon Bear and Disasters . As a child, Brenda never thought she wanted to be a writer--her dreams tended more toward jungle explorer. She graduated from the University of Washington with degrees in English and Fine Art. She started thinking about writing for children when her son went to elementary school, and she volunteered in his class and in the school library. After taking exciting trips that involved a fifty-foot cactus, hungry alligators and sunset-colored spoonbills, she wanted to create books for childrenthat would be like a field trip. Her books are full of well-researched detail, and Brenda sees this research as an adventure--one that allows her to be a jungle explorer at last. She lives in Seattle, Washington. Steve Jenkins is the acclaimed illustrator or author/illustrator of numerous books, including The Top of the World: Climbing Mount Everest , which received the Boston Globe/Horn Book Award for Nonfiction. He lives in Boulder, Colorado, with his family.
