About the Author

JEROME POHLEN is an editor and former elementary school teacher and the author of Chicago Baby, Texas Baby, Albert Einstein and Relativity for Kids, and 20 other books and science kits for young readers.

KYLE REED was born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. And guess what? You'll still find him there. But that doesn't mean he's never travelled to interesting places or experienced exciting things. He's been to Asia. He's been on two roller coasters. He's been on a third roller coaster. He's been to Sheridan College, where he studied illustration. Kyle has taken all these experiences and more (but not much more) and focused them into his artwork. Combining traditional collage, various mixed media, and digital applications, Kyle creates characters and worlds for children's stories and products. He has worked with various publishers and was also a part of CORE Digital Pictures' 2D design team working on Super Why, the children's educational cartoon airing on PBS (USA) and CBC (Canada).
