About the Author


Tom Angleberger ("Rise of the RoboShoes(TM)") began writing his first novel in eighth grade, but never completed it. Since then, he's been a newspaper reporter and columnist, a juggler, a weed boy, a lawn-mower-part assembler, and a biology research assistant. This bestselling author insists he's not really all that creative--"I'm more of a puzzle-putter-together."

Ray Bradbury (1920-2012) was an American novelist, short story writer, essayist, playwright, screenwriter, and poet. Among his best-known works are "The Martian Chronicles", "The Illustrated Man", and "Fahrenheit 451".

Shannon Hale ("Bouncing the Grinning Goat") began writing at age ten--mostly fantasy stories where she was the heroine. She never stopped. She writes bestselling books for kids and adults and also writes graphic novels. Her book Princess Academy was named a Newbery Honor Book in 2006. Shannon lives with her family near Salt Lake City, Utah.
