About the Author

Sophie Pryce is a children’s book editor and writer. She grew up in the quiet suburbs of Connecticut, but now lives in bustling New York City. Sophie has been creating books for many years, and when she isn’t writing she enjoys cooking, swimming, and completing jigsaw puzzles.

Tim Palin was born in Salem, MA, to a non-witching family (as far as he knows). From elementary school and beyond, Tim took lots of art classes and stayed up WAY too late drawing. He had a knack for making works of art using everything from pencils and ink to clay and egg cartons and Popsicle sticks! It didn’t take him long to discover that Popsicle sticks weren’t really his medium. Now he uses his computer and his imagination to make the world a cuter place. When Tim isn’t illustrating or designing books, you can find him baking cakes, time-traveling, planning his global takeover, and binge-watching cheesy sitcoms with his super-charming husband, Michael, and two canine beasts, Edith and Esteban (who goes by ‘Steve’).
