About the Author: Joyce Lapin is the author of If You Had Your Birthday Party on the Moon and The Little Spacecraft that Could, both from Sterling Children’s Books. Joyce has enjoyed reading and learning about other worlds since childhood. A former advertising copywriter, she’s happy to have found a kinder, gentler life. Joyce is originally from Glen Cove (Long Island, NY) and now lives in Simsbury, Connecticut. Her favorite nonfiction readings include biographies and survival stories. For fiction, she loves anything by John Grisham and Elin Hilderbrand.
Joyce’s happy place is the beach. The light of her life are her 10 great-nieces and great-nephews.
About the Illustrator: Simona Ceccarelli grew up in Italy, with a passion for both art and science, a large library – which has been expanding out of control ever since – and the urge to open all doors and follow every path. She worked as a medical research scientist for more than 10 years. Art eventually lured her back to follow “the road not taken.” She studied illustration and visual development at San Francisco’s Academy of Art University and found her happy place in children’s illustration. She has published books and more with Sterling Children’s Books, Amicus Publishing, Scholastic Education, Thienemann-Esslinger, Dressler, Carlsen Verlag, Harper-Collins, PI Kids, Rizzoli/Mondadori, Cricket Media, Parallel Games, Haba and many others.
