About the Author


Richard Tupper Atwater (1892-1948) lived in Chicago and worked as a journalist, often writing humorous pieces for newspapers such as the "Chicago Tribune". He wrote two books for children before beginning "Mr. Popper's Penguins", a 1939 Newbery Honor Book. Before he could finish the story, however, he became ill. His wife, Florence Hasseltine Atwater (1899-1979) finished the book, helping launch a story that has remained popular for generations.


Anne-Laure Bondoux is the author of "The Second Life of Linus Hoppe, the companion to "The Destiny of Linus Hoppe, as well as the young adult novel "The Killer's Tears. The author lives in Paris, France.
