I love to go canoeing and camping, and this book is a composite of my own experiences." Phyllis Root has written many books for children, including WHAT BABY WANTS, ALL FOR THE NEWBORN BABY, and KISS THE COW!
Jane Chapman has a pet tortoise named Muggs, who at the age of seventy is a family heirloom, and one day she would like to have a duck as well. She is the illustrator of several books for children, including THE EMPEROR'S EGG by Martin Jenkins and THE STORY OF CHRISTMAS by Vivian French.
