About the Author
BRIAN MEEHL and Billy Allbright have something in common. They've both ridden zigzag trails. Meehl's first zig was puppeteering on Sesame Street
. Then he zagged to writing for kids' television and picked up three Emmys along the way. He is also the author of the hilarious and inventive Out of Patience
and Suck It Up
. Living 250 yards from where Mark Twain died 100 years ago, Meehl has a chronic fear of the Master appearing and intoning, "The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated, as well as your authorial skills. I recommend a swift retreat to puppeteering."
